45: A Valentine

Posted by wonko on February 14, 2011 in boxes |

…now I am not one to buy into the whole commercialism of Valentines Day, afterall it is a Hallmark moment mostly, but it did give me inspiration for todays model – a heart-shaped box:

So I made one on Friday (inbetween sleeps as I was sick) as a first-time fold and was so pleased with it I made a nice one (using some patterned parchment), made a hearty shapey thing out of gold foil, personalized it, then whilst shopping Saturday discovered that Darryl Lee have a dark chocolate heart that just fits the box made from an A4 page – all sweet. Hid until this morning it made a nice surprise.

I am sure you have done something for the one you love, I also am sure it is not as nice as mine šŸ˜›

Alternatively, you could have a go at this:

Nice use of a SINGLE sheet of A4 split lengthways down the middle to make the base and lid.
