This heart box is the perfect size to hold M&M’s, mints, nuts, or even the miniature candy bars. The box measures 3” x 3” x 1”. I’ve left the hearts blank so they can be decorated in a wide variety of ways. I used watercolor pencils to color them, but markers or craft paint would give deeper colors. And of course I needed to add an outline of iridescent glitter to finish the project. This heart box could also be used for a Mother’s Day gift box.
