This is one of a series of small favor box templates. For other templates in the series see - Small Favor Box Templates.

Use the free printable template on the next page to make this small heart favor box. This cute little gift box is ideal for holding small favors or gifts for Valentine's day, weddings or other romantic occasions. The box is formed in two pieces, with an inner box and outer cover with a heart design. Either print the template directly onto paper or print it onto scrap paper before transferring this to quality paper. Use a dab of glue or small piece of double sided tape to hold the cover of the box together.

This favor box can be decorated or stamped with a small image such as a sentiment. It would also look great made from scrapbooking or decorative paper.

The photo above shows a favor box that I made using this template. I colored the paper with marker pens and colored the heart in a second color to emphasize the design. Although this isn't clear in the picture, I used a floral stamp to stamp an all-over design and then embossed this with clear embossing powder to give a subtle decoration to the finished box.

Tip: To stop the fold lines showing use the reverse side of the template as the 'right' side.

While the construction of this box is relatively straight forward, it always a good idea to make an example with scrap paper first before using quality paper. This also allows you to try different decoration ideas.
