Make a pretty 3d paper heart gift box! Download the free printable template to make your own DIY heart box, great for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, parties or weddings!

The template can be printed onto the paper of your choice. I recommend thick paper or card.

The glue you use will depend on your paper, double sided sticky tape could be used too. For thinner paper I prefer using a glue stick. For thick card, liquid PVA glue seems better.

For heart boxes that fit inside each other, start by making one box, then the second time you print the template, set the printer to scale at about 80% and so on.

Hope you like this box! The shape was first created using Blender, a 3d software, and then edited in illustrator.
