Sweet heart box

In order to make an interesting hand-crafted item - box-box in the form of a heart for Valentine's Day, you will not need special skills, but only your desire and time.
So, what we need:
  • quilling paper,
  • plain white paper
  • plain cardboard
  • colored cardboard
  • satin fabric,
  • foam rubber
  • PVA glue,
  • Scotch,
  • stapler
  • scissors,
  • content to be filled.

Initially, we determine the size of the future product. In order for your product to be perfect in size, create an initial heart pattern from which all calculations will come. You can either draw yourself, or find on the Internet. We cut out two copies of ordinary cardboard, one standard, the other 0.5 cm more, one of plain paper and one of colored cardboard. Normal cardboard will act as the box itself, the rest of the templates - for decoration. Then, it is necessary to cut a strip of cardboard, with such a width as the height of the rim, and add another 2-3 cm to this size. The length of the strip will be equal to the circumference of the heart pattern.We bend the edge along the width to the left 2-3 cm, an even strip along the entire length, and we cut each centimeter. Starting from the middle of the heart - a template of cardboard, apply our strip, and carefully fix tape. If strongly overlaps one on another, then you can cut the corners of the stripes. And you get something like this.

Now we take the second heart blank, which is 0.5 cm larger, and do the same. We should have a box that closes tightly. Now proceed to the design. We take paper for quilling, devices for quilling, or a cut toothpick, a blank heart pattern made from plain paper, and PVA glue. Quilling paper makes all kinds of curls.
