3) Fold along thin solid dashed lines. Note: Using a bone folder before folding will help create a nice crease.

4) Fill with chocolates. Match up the two slits first and then insert the two tabs into the slits to create the box. See photo above.

5) Glue on or staple the hearts to both sides of tabs.

Other options:

The Sweet Treat Box can also be used as a weight for a Helium filled Valentine balloon. Punch a hole on the top of box tab and tie the balloon to the box.

Here is another version you can try. After constructing the box, cut across the top tab about a 1/2" down from the top and then hole punch the center of the tab. Punch a hole into the top of one of the hearts and then tie on a piece of ribbon. Attach the heart with the ribbon to the hole on the top of the box and then tie the ribbon into a bow.
