Treat your sweet­heart on Valen­tine’s Day with Sarah Jack­man-Read’s gift box and for­tune cook­ies

Cre­ate a sweet box and fill with for­tune cook­ies for friends and loved ones

Think out­side the box this Valen­tine’s Day — by cre­at­ing a box! In­spired by a Chi­nese take­away car­ton, this su­per-cute dec­o­ra­tive gift box is easy to make from a sheet of 12x12in pa­per, and makes an orig­i­nal al­ter­na­tive to a stan­dard card.

Con­tin­u­ing with the theme, you can then fill your gift box with lots of pretty pa­per for­tune cook­ies. Have fun writ­ing a num­ber of mes­sages to your loved one to slip in­side the cook­ies, stack them in­side the box and look for­ward to see­ing your loved one’s face as they open it on Valen­tine’s Day – they’ll love read­ing all of your spe­cial sen­ti­ments!

As well as a won­der­ful Valen­tine’s gift, you could also make this paper­craft set to cel­e­brate an an­niver­sary. It will make a lovely birthday present for a friend or fam­ily mem­ber, too, or even Mother’s Day — es­pe­cially if you know that the re­cip­i­ent is a real fan of Chi­nese food!
