If all you can muster for Valentine’s Day wrapping this year is some plain ol’ wrapping paper… I’m here to encourage you to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to it. Like these little 3D hearts, perhaps? My latest project with Cricut just took your boring gift box to the next LEVEL!

Cricut Explore™ + Cutting Mat (*** See note below the instructions if you are not a Cricut owner!)
Wrapped Package or Gift Box
1. Open this project in Cricut Design Space and follow the instructions to cut the heart shapes out of cardstock.
2. Fold each heart shape in half, right through the middle points.
3. Run a glue stick along the outside edge of the fold and glue each heart onto your gift as desired.
***A few of you have mentioned that you don’t have a Cricut and would love a way to still be able to make the projects I share in partnership with them. Good news! I have a solution for you thanks to the new Print and Cut feature. If you’d like to make one of these projects and you don’t have a Cricut, follow the steps below. This will allow you to purchase the file (just $0.99!) and print and cut it by hand. I will warn you that this will be a bit more laborious as you will be hand cutting everything, but it’s a great solution for those of you who’ve asked!
1. Click the “Make It Now” button for the project above.
2. Press the “Customize” button.
3. Select all images and click the “flatten” button in the pop-up menu on the right.
4. Hit “Go” and then hit “Print and continue”. At this point, your printer menu will pop up and you can print the image. After you hit print, it will ask you to make sure you have connected your Cricut Explore, but you can just ignore this as you are all finished! Once you’ve printed the template, you can trace it on to your cardstock and cut out the shapes by hand. Tada!!!
