DIY Valentine's Day- Heart Treat Box

I love pretty much any holiday and I love finding new things to make for them.
Valentine's Day is around the corner and the other day I got to thinking about. I thought that "I should try and make a mini heart treat box" (cause that's what I do in my free time). I sat down with my new collection ;) and using just TWO pieces of paper. I was able to make this adorable box and after all... what's Valentine's Day without a box of Chocolates?!
So let's get started

This whole thing took about 40 minutes to make. Most Heart boxes cost a pretty penny ($12-20) and I made this for the cost of Adhesive and two 12X12 sheets of paper.
Total Cost: under $3.oo

Next week I'll show you how I fill it with home made treats.

The heart is about 4X5 inches.
I'll put up a template for it later this week :)

Where did all the photos go?! I need reference points! I'd love to DIY something for my wife...although I fear I may have to keep something in reserve in the form of traditional Valentines chocolate to avoid penalties!
