Heart 3D Shaped Mini Candy Box

Small sized box holds a little measure 
of sweet treats for a special Valentine. 
One-shape box includes front and 
back heart panels, with side wedge gussets, 
back tuck and tab latch (seal with a clear circle or 
heart sticker for extra security). 
Offset heart included as front decoration, 
with simple oval label style tag without punch 
to place on front panel, or with punch to tie to top bridge. 
Measures approx. 4.375” tall x 4.375” wide 
at fullest x 1.5” deep at fullest. 

ASSEMBLY: 1. Identify and cut the shapes:
A heart box main shape
B heart outline overlay
C label (shown is hole-punched version)
2. Prepare the box shape by bending back on all
perforation lines, except  bend 
the end latch tab forward, and  . . . 
. . . at the side gussets, bend the horizontal line
back, (take care to allow creases to extend
only between heart panels/flange, and . . . 
. . . bend the up-angled perf lines as valley folds
(bend forward).
3. Position and attach the optional heart outline
accent shape on the front, offset in an equal
distance from front heart edges.
4. Form the main shape into its box form to bring
the flange tab at one side together with straight
left edge of back heart panel, overlapping
straight edge to gusset perforation line to position
and glue side seam.
NOTE that it is possible to flatten the heart box
to apply fingertip pressure along the seam.
5. Adjust the box to its "volume" form, then
bend the gusset panels inward toward
center, with lobe panels aligning roughly
behind the adjacent lobes of the heart panels.
6. At the back, bend the top latch extension
over to back heart panel, prepare to tuck
the bottom latch tab into the trapezoid cutout,
while at the same time . . . 
. . . bending the smaller tab down to insert
under the top edge of the trapezoid cut out.

The latch will be fully in place with the bottom
tab inserted behind the bottom trapezoid edge.
(View the closed back of heart at the third image
at the beginning of this tutorial.)
7. Position the optional label:
option 1: non-punched label at heart
front or back center as shown here; OR
option 2: end-punched version tied to the latch
arm with decorative twine, as shown here.
