Picture of No Glue Valentines Boxes
I had an hour to kill, so I though I might put together some valentines cardstock boxes. I wanted to make them 'no glue' as I tend to get PVA glue everywhere when I use it!

You could use these to put anything inside; sweets, messages, a ring!?!

These are charming! I especially like #4, which is particularly well suited for a ring--or maybe just a truffle :-).

Truffle sounds good to me!
hiii hw r u???...

wonderful! thank you for including the templates and very good instructions. I am going to make these with my 1st graders :-)

If you are going to do multiple copies you may want to print 1no on A3, then orientate it to fit on A4. Then copy it multiple times on A4. Will save you some money/paper!

no lazer cutter? boring. but i have Cricut!
Mr_o_uk (author)  ntinumirov1 year ago
Unfortunately I don't have a laser cutter or an electronic cutter, otherwise I may well have used them. The files are there ready to convert and use on either though!

I have just been accepted in the papercraft contest, so voting for me might change that!

That's so cool! I love how they don't need glue or tape. It makes them easier to reuse each year.

Very nice work!

Instead of Autocad, I use Draftsight. It is identical to Autocad R12, but is freely available for download from Dassault Systemes website: http://www.3ds.com/products-services/draftsight/download-draftsight/
