Valentin’s Day Gift Box with ‘Open When’ Envelopes

Hello Everyone!

Swarna Raman with you today to share another awesome project and its for Valentines Day! Yes, It’s that time of the year when you can send special gifts to your loved one. So, its a Valentine’s Day gift box  with ‘Open when’ envelopes.

Lets get started with the tutorial.

I have chosen a MDF 4 “*4” box as the base and painted all over with Salsa Red Chalk paint.


As for the pattern paper, I have chosen Little Birdie’s ‘A true Love Story’ paper pack.

Itsy bitsy have a huge variety of  paper pack collections . Do check in the link below . Paper pack collections 

Now, let’s create the envelopes. I have taken few print outs for captions.

To create the envelopes, cut 5 3/4″* 5 3/4″  from a pattern  paper.

As shown in the picture below, mark the points and make a rectangle in the center of the paper.

Score and fold the lines. Cut the triangle edges for the final folding of the envelope. I have curved the flap edges for a neat finish.

Fold and paste the edges of the envelope.


Now, lets attach the print out captions to the envelopes.

I have kept a small card inside each envelope for handwritten messages.

Lets add some embellishments to the project.  ‘A True Love Story’ paper pack has one embellishment sheet which is a great help for coordinating small embellishments with the theme.

I have cut a few embellishments to decorate the box.



So here it is!


Also, I have added chocolates to each envelope. They are attached to the envelopes using tacky tape.

So, here is the final result!

I really enjoyed creating this cute little project. Hope you all enjoyed too !!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Will be back soon with a new project !
