■ ■ ■ Materials needed
- 1 sheet of paper or light cardboard / cardstock (80 to 200g)
- A printer and scissors or cutter OR a paper cutting machine like Cricut or Silhouette
If you use cardboard, you also need a ruler and a dull point tool (or dried out pen) to score the folds.
■ ■ ■ How to make the paper heart box
Just follow the easy step-by-step instructions and pictures of the included manual.
The process is:
1. Print and cut the template, or cut it with a paper cutting machine
2. Make the folds. If you use the printed template, they are indicated by dotted lines. If you used a paper cutting machines, you don't have the dotted lines, but there are easy references points and I show where to fold in the manual.
Note: if you use cardboard, it's best to "score" the folds by marking them with a dull point tool such as dried out pen before folding.
3. Glue the tabs in the indicated order.
And that's it! It is very easy and even kids can do it.

Once you order, as soon as Etsy processes your payment (usually within minutes), Etsy will send you a link to download a ZIP compressed file that contains all the SVG, DXF, PDF, EPS, PNG and Silhouette Studio files listed in the listing description.
On most recent computers, Mac and Windows, you just need to double click on the ZIP file to open it. You can then move the files to another folder, or just uncompress all the files. You can also right click and then select "Extract all".
1. First download and uncompress the ZIP file. The ZIP file contains files in different file formats (SVG, DXF, PDF, EPS, PNG and .studio3).
2. Launch Cricut Design Space in your browser and create a new project.
3. Click on "Upload" and then on "Upload Image" and "Browse".
4. Select the SVG file you want (depending on your computer and browser settings, SVG files might show as type "Google Chrome HTML document" or similar).
5. In the Upload page, your uploaded SVG designs will be in the "Recently upload images" section, select the designs by clicking on them. You can select multiple designs with Ctrl + click.
8. Click on "Insert Image" to put the designs in your project.
You need to use the provide .studio3 files or the DXF files because the free version of Silhouette Studio does not support.
In Silhouette Studio, just click on "Open" and then select the .studio3 or DXF file you want.
With the provided SVG files, you can use a SVG editor to change the colors of the different layers. I recommend the free Inkscape software for Windows and Mac. You can select each layer, and choose the color. Then click on "Export" to save a PNG file with the design with your custom colors.
Absolutely! It's always a great pleasure to see what you do with my SVG designs. They take a lot of time, care and love to make, but it's an awesome feeling to see them being used to make cool things! The easiest way to send me pictures of what you have done is to use the Etsy reviews, as you can easily attach a picture to your review. You can also send them to me by Etsy conversation or on Facebook. Thank you so much!
