DIY Valentine’s Day Favor Box

Sometimes the simplest details say much more since we put a lot of love in making them ourselves. What do you think about a Valentine’s Day Favor Box full of lovely surprises for this coming V-Day? This is a cute craft from the past that I love so much I wanted to update it and share it again.

This box is super easy to make and does not need many supplies. It’s also perfect to make with kids. I love, love, love giving gifts made with my hands, but even when you buy something you can put a little of yourself wrapping it. So a favor box makes the trick and the possibilities are endless.

You will need:

  • Cardstock {plain or patterned depends on each person}.
Scissors or Cutter.
  • Hot Glue gun
  • White 
Ribbon, laces, or anything you like to decorate.

I made a printable template of the box and the lid that can be snagged HERE if you want but it is so easy that you can sure do without the template.

I used some cute digital papers from Clementine Digitals. I just love her creations.

Firstly print the template directly on the back of the cardboard you want to use. And the lid can be printed in different or plain cardboard to add some contrast. Once everything is printed, cut the leftovers and fold along the dashed line to give the main box shape.

Then the corners should be folded towards inside the box.

The lid is made the same way we made the box but here we apply a bit of glue on the corners because the cover is what keeps the box together.

Then decorate them with white grosgrain ribbon to make a cool contrast. Glue everything with hot glue and add a cute ribbon bow to make it cute.

Once it’s ready, decorate the inside {I used some flowers and hearts cutouts and I wrote some loving messages}, you can add any decorative papers, or silhouettes as you like.

When both, box and lid are ready put some candies, and/or gifts, whatever you would like to give to your loving one.
