DIY Trinket Box for Valentine's Day

This is a great Valentine’s gift to give to your girlfriends, book club, or co-workers. It’s simple and personalized with love. If you don’t have time to follow the directions below-an alternative to creating the entire box would be to purchase a heart shaped box already decorated and just add ribbon and silk flower with tacky or hot glue and Voila!

What you’ll need:
Heart-shaped cardboard box (appr. 5” wide)
White primer (Krylon)
Pink-striped or other paper to cover
Ribbon for side of lid
Artificial flower for top
Mod Podge matte glue
Tacky glue (Aleene’s Quick Dry)
Foam Brush; small sharp scissors

PRIME outside of box and lid. Let dry.
CUT strips of the paper ¾” wider and longer than box and lid sides. Trace lid top on the paper and cut out shape.
BRUSH Mod Podge onto back of paper strips and apply centered along box and lid sides. Clip into excess every ¼” and fold over edges. Glue paper heart to top of lid.
ATTACH ribbon along side of lid and flower to center top with tacky glue.
