Step 1: Print and Cut the Template

Download the template from the Google Drive Link HERE, print it out (disable scaling and resizing before you print!!), tape it together and cut it out.

Step 2: Cut Out the Layers and Box Cover

Use a scalpel to cut out the layers and shave off 1 cm (1/3 of an inch) off the length of each layer's side, to make the bottom layers bigger than the top ones.

Use a pointed screw driver to create folding lines in the box cover.

Step 3: Glue the Photos

Use the Glue gun to glue the photos on the layers, making sure you don't put too much glue on the same spot, to prevent it from forming a bulge and/or melting the photo.

Step 4: Glue the Layers on Top of Each Other

Glue the layers on top of each other, making sure they are nicely centered, then glue the box cover and try it.

Step 5: Wrap It Up

Place your gift / Heart / Chocolates inside the box, close it up and use a red ribbon to wrap it!

You are done!

Step 6: The Result

Congratulations, You have made your partner a Gift box that will impress them and earn you quite some partner points! :)
