Materials:

  • 2 Larger sized paint chip samples lighter colors work best
  • Bone folder or wooden ruler
  • Tacky glue
  • Small heart shaped motif, you can use a rhinestone heart, wooden, paper punched, or like in my case a puffy heart.
  • Tiny gift bow
  • Ruler, pencil, scissors

Instructions:

  1. Measure and cut a paint chip sample 3 ½” x 3 ½”. Cut the other paint chip sample 3 ¼” x 3 ¼”.

  7. Open. This is the only tricky part, although it does sort of fold itself. Tuck the points in and down on one side first, then do the same thing on the opposite side. All four points will meet inside the box top. (See photo)
