Hello, Pebbles’ fans! Eva Pizarro on the blog today sharing a tutorial on how to create a heart-shaped box from your next mini album using the lovely HEY! hello line
Mini albums are a lovely gift and they are even better if they are inside a cute heart-shaped box!
To create this heart-shaped box the first thing you need to do is cut two hearts. I created a template and then used it to cut my shapes from this lovely spring pattern. My heart is 6 1/2 inch wide and 6 inches tall approximately.
Next, cut your hearts in half and cut two 1 1/4 inches wide strips of paper. Create creates at 1/4 inches and 1 inch.
Bend the sides and glue the two strips together to create one long strip.
Bend the paper strip in half (this will be the point of the heart) and cut small triangles on the bent strips so you can assemble the box.
Carefully, glue the strip to the hearts. Start at the point of the heart and go all the way until half of the heart.
Now, glue the top and make sure your boxes close perfectly. Inside the box, I included and mini album. This one is 4 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches and I made it using this tutorial for a One Page Mini Album.
To close the box I used a big ribbon and decorate it with die cuts and these lovely pink Thickers. See those cute shaker stickers? They add a great dimensional touch!
* Make sure you only glue decorations on one side of the box, otherwise you are not going to be able to open it *
Here’s how the project looks once you open the box.
The mini inside is pretty simple, I used pieces of paper and small 2 inch square photos.
To decorate it I used die cuts and stickers. This collection is great because it has a variety of sentiments: Thank you, Celebrations and Friendship!
This mini looks almost like a box of chocolates! It would make the perfect gift!
Thank you for joining me until the end of this post long and I hope you can create a heart-shaped box for your next mini!
Have a great day!
