How to Make

  1. Take a cardboard toilet roll and gently flatten it so the sides are creased. Carefully push down the ends of the tube, top and bottom, to create a small package shape. Repeat with a second toilet roll.
  2. Cover one tube with pink flower patterned paper and leave to dry. Add a piece of pink polka dot paper to the centre of the other roll. Fix a line of gems on either side of the dots.
  3. Tear a strip of pink paper and stick it in the centre of the dotty one. Cut a heart from white felt approximately 3.5cm tall and attach in the middle of the box.
  4. Finally, trim a long length of thin, pink ribbon and secure the boxes together with this, tying a bow in the centre.

Top Tip

Make sure to fold down the ends very gently at first, only crease them properly when you are happy with the final shape
