Step 1. Cut two squares on a piece of cardboard. Draw two hearts using a lead pencil in each of the square cardboard. One heart should be bigger since the other heart will be the top cover and the other one is the bottom part of the box.

Step 2. Carefully cut the hearts using a sharp cutter.

Step 3. Corrugate the bigger heart using a piece of wooden skewer. Insert the tip of the skewer on the openings of the side carton then slowly pull the skewer up. Make sure that you are inserting the skewer on an alternate fashion to ensure that you are removing one side of the cardboard only.

Step 4. Cut a strip of cardboard that is about 2 centimeters wide. The length should be around a foot long.

Step 5. Corrugate the strip of board using the same procedure used in the hearts.

Step 6. Use the glue gun to glue the corrugated strip to the bigger heart’s edges. Make sure to start at the sides of the heart for better results.

Step 8. Cut a strip of brown construction board. The width should be at least 3 to 4 centimeters and the length should be at least a foot long. Glue this brown board strip on the edges of the smaller heart.
