Wood You Be Mine? – DIY Wood Heart Shaped Box

Handmade Valentines are made with so much love! We packed this little wood heart box full of love and candy. Sweet! This little wood Valentine Box was made using our Cherry Wood paper and a few basic crafting supplies. See DIY steps below.


1 Sheet of 12″ x 12″ Cherry Wood Paper, 1 Sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ Cherry Wood paper, chipboard heart shaped box, pink card stock, red card stock, white paper, glue, rose embellishments, shape scissors, scissors, printer and this Arrows print file.

1. Print the arrow artwork onto a sheet of Cherry Wood paper and cut out arrow. Set aside for later.
2. Print the phrase “Wood You Be Mine” onto a sheet of white paper. Cut out in banner shape. See example.
3. Trace 2 hearts onto pink card stock using the top of the chipboard heart box as a template. Adhere one heart to bottom of box.

Seal of approval on these Party Favors

Perfect Party Favors

We love a good party favor, and the perfect party favor doesn’t need to include much to make an impact. Here are two favor ideas for your next event.

We created these teal polka dot paper bag favors using ordinary printed bags and Real Wood Mailing Labels to seal the bag.

Our Real Wood Mailing labels come in Cherry and Birch finishes and can be used for so much more than addressing envelopes. Here we filled the teal polka dot favor bag with a treat. Next we folded the top edge of the bag over to close. Then sealed the party favor bag with a Birch Wood mailing label. You can add a message or simple button (like we did) for embellishment and these favors are ready to be gifted.

Wood Treat Boxes

Real Wood Paper is a great choice for creating a 3d box. These Cherry Wood treat boxes were created by using a purse box cut file (like this one), a 12″x12″ sheet of Cherry Wood paper and an e-cutter.

1. Cut the box file onto a sheet of Cherry Wood paper using an e-cutter.

2. Fold and assemble the box and lightly sand the edges if needed.

3. Fill the box with a small treat.

4. Tie box closed with a ribbon.
