Valentine’s Breakable Heart Favors DIY

The fun of these Valentine’s is that you HAVE to break the heart to get to the goodies inside! Simple paper hearts, with a top and a bottom, contain candies or gifts, whichever you prefer. BUT, the only way to get them out is to literally “break your heart!” For more Valentines Day DIY ideas, click here!

Materials needed: cardstock, scissors, scallop scissors, x-acto knife, ruler, glue, paper clips, tissue paper or crepe paper, alphabet stamps, stamp pad, Valentine’s embellishments

Step 1: Cut an 11” x 1 1/2” of cardstock. (If you make several, you can try different size strips to get different size boxes).
Step 2: Fold in half.
Step 3: Bend the ends of the strip towards each other, with the OUTSIDE of each strip touching each other.
Step 4: Glue the touching ends together and secure with two paper clips. Let dry thoroughly. You now have a heart.
Step 5: Cut out a square of paper that is bigger than the heart. Attach a line of glue all along the edge of the heart, and then place the heart glue side down on the square. Let dry.
Step 6: Cut the flat paper a ¼” around the heart with scalloped scissors (or just regular scissors if you don’t have scalloped). Let dry. Fill with candy or tokens.
Step 7: Cut out a square of tissue or crepe paper slight larger than the top of the heart.
Step 8: Attach a line of glue to the top edge of the heart. Repeat if you want two layers of crepe or tissue. Let dry.
Step 9: Trim the edge around the heart. Fringe or scallop as desired.
Step 10: Adorn with ribbon, hearts, arrows, feathers, etc. and tags that read “Heartbreaker!” or “Don’t Break My Heart!”

    thank you so much for composing and sharing this amazingly wonderful craft!! i can barely contain my enthusiasm. i am so inspired that i already made a number to spread the fun. i agree that it can be adapted with other shapes – a circle for a birthday (or any day) surprise.
