A wonderful tradition to give paired wedding gifts, friends and lovers inspired us to create a package with hearts in red and white colors. You can pack anything you like in such paper boxes: handmade soaps, home-made sweets, delicate confessions for Valentine’s Day, hand-written and even expensive gifts. Romantic hearts on packages of contrasting colors, evoke pleasant emotions and create a good mood in the process of presenting the gift to the addressee and the one who gives his love.

  3. We cut along the solid lines, and mark the bend along the dotted lines. To do this, draw a solid line under the ruler with the blunt side of the scissors. We bend all the openings and edges of the paper gift box. Apply glue or double sided tape on the sides in 6 places, as indicated on the photo of the package with your own hands.

  8. We continue to decorate the hearts. To do this, take a napkin and cut it first into strips, and then into squares measuring 1.5 cm × 1.5 cm. If three-layer napkins do not need to be disassembled, so the flowers will come out in bulk.

  9. Next, use the excellent method of trimming. To do this, we take one small red square, wrap it around the blunt end of a pencil and wrinkle it a little. We moisten the napkin in the PVA and apply it to the red heart, pressing it well with a pencil. It turns out beautiful rosebuds that need to paste over the entire surface of the scarlet heart.
