DIY Crown Jewel Heart Box – Template included

This Crown Jewel Heart Box was made from a piece of decorated paper that was red on one side and had a wonderful print on the other.

I named this the Crown Jewel Heart Box  because the shape reminds me of the Crown Jewels. The above box is made out of light weight card stock. 

I discovered a puffy little box and absolutely fell in love with it. I’ve modified the box a bit and turned it into what I call a Crown Jewel Heart Box. I even made a template that you can download, so it’s very easy to make these cute little boxes yourself.

This Crown Jewel Heart Box was made from hot pink card stock that was sprayed with some purple ink. The heart shows the unsprayed hot pink. I love the contrast.

Print the template out on the back side of your chosen paper. Cut along the solid lines. Fold along the dashed lines. Then slip the two halves of the hearts through the slits and open the heart. You can either crease the heart halves or push them open gently for a softer look.

This Crown Jewel Heart Box works with either text weight or cover weight paper. Click here to download the Crown Jewel Heart Box template.

  1. Candy, You are just too clever and talented for your own good! Marge

  2. I am craft challenged – have the cuts made and the folding but can’t figure out how to put it together. Do you have a video?

    • Good idea about a video. I just made a wooden platform type of structure to hold my camera steady over my drafting table in hopes I will eventually be able to make videos. I am still working on the necessary details to make this happen. I am glad you figured out how to put it together.

  3. Ok, figured it out! Hope I can do 6 more :)) Cute idea!

  4. Hi Candy! I love what you did with this little box! I wrote about some boxmaking back in December, and I’ve gone back to what I wrote and added a reference to your post. Your modifications are wonderful.
