How to make a heart-shaped box of paper with your own hands
⇒ Step 1. Print or redraw the template. ⇒ Step 2. Transfer the template to the colored paper - just circle the pencil around the contour, and then use the ruler to draw the folds. ⇒ Step 3. Cut a template with scissors or a model knife (scalpel). Alternatively, you can skip step 2: attach a sheet with a template to a sheet of colored paper, attach it around the edges with an adhesive tape, and cut out the pattern right away without redrawing it. ⇒ Step 4. Fold the workpiece along the dashed lines. ⇒ Step 5. Apply glue to area A (by template). Glue A to B. ⇒ Step 6. Glue the areas C and D over the bent inwards E and F. ⇒ Step 7. Using the slots, connect the areas I and J together. They form the heart. The box is ready!
