Valentine's Star Fold Triangular Gift Box

For the first of my Valentine's themed paper craft projects I thought I'd share this cute triangular box which closes the same way as the star fold card which was so popular. The video tutorial is here.

I'm not sure if other versions of this are available elsewhere in terms of tutorial but this one I muddled together so that it could be made using one sheet of A4 for the base. So it's my own design which used the star fold technique that I found so striking. It all begins with a piece of 8x11 cardstock and a few squares of painted love DSP.

It's easier to make than it looks and the tutorial for it is available on my channel now but it's more complex to explain in writing so I won't even try. There's quite a bit of cutting and measuring but once you've made your first one that will all seem so much easier.

I gold heat embossed the label on the front and tied it off with some cute crinkle seam binding ribbon in Berry Burst.

Hope you like it.
