Who doesn't like conversation hearts? They come in pretty pastel colors, they have cute sayings (Tweet Me) printed on them, and did I mention they're made of sugar! So, as a tribute to the conversation heart, I've made an oversized box to fill with conversation heart cookies. Enjoy.
Template printed out
Box - I used a Barilla pasta box but you can use any kind you want
Click on image to make it larger, right click, copy, save, and print on cardstock. I made the borders extra large on this template so it can fit different size boxes. You can also scale the image if need be.
If you can, find a box with a window like the one in the picture.
Carefully take apart, re-glue inside out (refer to picture).
Paint the sides and back of box pink. You can also cover it with pink paper. I tried both ways and here's the verdict: painting is quick and easy, paper looks better but takes longer.
If your box has a window, cut out heart with exacto knife (refer to picture). If not, skip this step.
Line up printed template how you want it to show on the box. Trace front of box + top flap onto the back of template. Cut out and glue on front of box. Done!
