Free Printable Valentine Gift Box + Cupid's Appetizers

I made these two projects as Valentine's day DIYs for the French online magazine My Mag, which is filled with lovely tutorials and recipes! My Mag is the magazine of My blogs : My DIY (various DIY projects), My Day (wedding and events related DIY projects), and My Dz (home decor DIY projects). Although these wonderful blogs are in French, they almost always link to tutorials in English, so they're definitely worth a visit even if you don't speak a word of French :)

  VALENTINE GIFT BOX

You will need a printer, white card-stock, scissors, glue or double-sided tape, a hole punch, ribbon, a bone folder or butter knife, and the free PDF file.

1. Download the free PDF file (click here to download it), print on card stock, and cut out.

2. Fold the label along the solid white line, and punch a hole over the white circle. Write a little note inside, or the name of the lucky recipient.

3. Score along the dotted lines, using a a bone folder or butter knife. Fold the red flap, then punch a hole over the gray circles. Fold the box up, gluing the gray flaps.

4. Fill the box with candies, love notes, chocolates or other surprises.

5. Tuck in the top flap of the box and thread the ribbon through the holes. Tie a nice bow, and you're done!

  CUPID'S APPETIZERS


You will need oval cherry tomatoes, toothpicks, a printer, heavy weight paper, scissors, glue or double-sided tape, and the free printable file.

1. Download the free PDF file (click here to download it), print on heavy weight paper, and cut along the solid lines. The triangles represent the arrowheads, and the other shape represents the arrow fetching.

2. Cut out the white parts of the shapes representing the arrow fetching. You need two pieces for one arrow. Adhere a piece of double-sided tape or glue to one of the paper pieces and place the toothpick onto the center. Place the second paper piece on top and pinch both sides together, adhering them to the toothpick.

3. Now cut your cherry tomatoes. You need two tomatoes for one heart appetizer. Diagonally cut away about one third of each tomato. Assemble two bigger parts to a heart and stick them together with the toothpick. 
Please note : After I made these tomato hearts, I saw (via Debbie Messmer's Pinterest) that something similar had already been done by Eye Candy Food Blog. Check it out for a step by step tutorial on how to form the heart.

4. You now need to add the arrowhead. You need two paper triangles for one arrow. Adhere a piece of double-sided tape or glue to one of the triangles and place the bottom of the toothpick onto the center. Place the second paper triangle on top and pinch both sides together, adhering them to the toothpick.

5. Voila! You can also use the toothpick arrows as table decor or gift toppers.

I hope you like these projects, and I wish you all a super happy Valentine's day!
