Tiny Tuck and Close Valentine Gift Box

Hello and welcome!

Today I'm sharing this cute little box with you.  It's only 1 3/4" square and 3/4" deep, so you can get four of them (yes, FOUR) out of one sheet of A4 card.  
I was inspired by a project shared by Sabine Waack in a Facebook group that I'm a member of - but this kind of box has been around for some time.  It uses no adhesive - the box holds itself together by clever engineering. 

I've embellished this one as a Valentine's Day gift and tucked a heart-shaped chocolate inside.  Isn't the Painted With Love paper gorgeous? (By the way, did you spot the "Love You" sentiment in the Party Pandas stamps? Such a useful set - check it out in the Sale-A-Bration brochure!)  
Here in the UK we tend to give Valentines only to the special person in our life but this little box would make a great container for a party favour if you used a different colour/pattern of card and paper.

Here's the video tutorial-

And here's the cutting/folding diagram.  I've included measurements for two sizes so if you want to make a slightly bigger version you don't have to do the maths yourself.  
What would you put in yours - or what would you like to find?

Keep crafting!
