If you or your kids love giving out treats for Valentine’s Day, then you’ll love this Valentine’s Day treat box craft I’m sharing with you today. It’s a wonderful way to show family and friends that you care!
These Valentine’s Day treat boxes can also be made in under 15 minutes, and are even easy enough for the kids to help make. I used modern paper and colors, but you could customize these any way that you like with different paper, colors, and ribbon.
You’ll need a Sizzix Big Shot machine for this project. If you don’t have one I HIGHLY recommend buying one. I use mine ALL the time for cute party favors (think boxes, bags, and baskets), cupcake and cake toppers, decorations, cards, and so much more.
You’ll also need the Sizzix Treat Popper die by Brenda Walton. She is my favorite die designer, and all her dies are so pretty and feminine. You’ll get so many uses out of this die!
Valentine’s Day Treat Box
Supplies: (may contain affiliate links)
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Sizzix Treat Popper die (I just noticed that this die has been retired- boo! I’m sure you can still find it online.)
- Extended cutting pads
- Pattern and colored paper
- Tissue paper
- Ribbon (that matches your paper)
- Fringe scissors– optional
- Tissue paper- optional
- Glue gun
- Small treats
Step 1. To cut the die with the Big Shot, you’ll need to stack an extended cutting pad, the Treat Popper die, the paper (pretty side down), and the other extended cutting pad on top. Roll it through the Big Shot by turning the handle to cut the treat box and the pretty decorative layer that goes over the top of the box.
Step 2. Fold the box and decorative piece along the score lines. I glued my box together here, but I realized after that it’s easier to put together if you don’t glue just yet.
Step 3. Take a sheet of tissue paper and cut it to the length of the candy box. Use Fringe scissors to cut fringe on both ends of the paper. Roll up your treats inside the tissue paper then place the tissue paper and treats in the middle of the box.
Step 4. Fold up the treat box, then use your glue gun to glue it together on the tabs.
Step 5. Tie up your Valentine’s Day treat box with ribbon and add any other embellishments to it. I added a few pink hearts and pretty paper.
Don’t you love how pretty these are? They look complicated to make, but are SO simple. My youngest daughter helped me make these. She loves to roll the Big Shot to cut the paper!
I love the pop of color that the fringed tissue paper adds that peeks out each end of the box. I couldn’t stop at one, so I made three boxes, with plans to make more. 😉
Thanks for letting me share this fun Valentine’s Day treat box with you! I’ll be sharing cute Valentine’s Day crafts every day this week that can be made in 15 minutes or less as a co-host of Craft Lightning. Check back daily for more inspiration!
