My collection of washi tape is getting quite large these days! So I am always on the lookout for fun craft projects that I can share with you here. As pretty as washi tape can be, there is the issue of it not sticking so well to things for the long haul. I found the perfect solution for this washi tape heart box, though—Mod Podge!
I picked up these cute heart boxes at my local Collage craft store. But you can also find them here on Amazon. This one is a perfect fit for 3 little truffles. So if you want to fit more truffles in your washi tape heart box, make sure to choose a larger size.
A Sweet Surprise
I had a little walk down memory lane shooting this post today. About 5 years ago I worked as the creative for a local chocolate company where I designed the packaging, catalogs, website. . . everything but the chocolate. I remember hunting for a photographer to shoot natural light, (I had only styled photography and had yet to even pick up a camera) but I couldn’t find a local photographer who worked that way. I did find a great photographer and we shot some gorgeous chocolate photos. My signature styling trick was to have a bite out of one or more pieces in the photo. I liked the photos to look real rather than too staged. Now, I am that natural light photographer and today it was all about chocolate. Of course I had to take a bite out of one chocolate for the photos!
When you’re ready to craft this washi tape heart box, just follow my step-by-step tutorial. Then top it with a pretty ribbon that is tied into a perfect bow. The only thing left to decide is…who will you give it to? Enjoy! ~Lia

Oh, I just love this idea, and I have you – and Rebecca at Soap Deli News – to thank for it!
I hadn’t read your intro: ( before rushing to the tutorial and was wondering why you used Mod Podge to cover the washi. I have corrected that grievous error, and I thank you for the super tip! xoxo
So glad you figured out my odd addition. I have my name in the cardboard forms covered in washi and it is all just falling off. I will have to go back and redo it. Go Mod Podge!

Thanks for mentioning the “not sticking for the long haul” issue. I thought I was the only one with that problem! Great solution.
I love using it on the kraft forms but it has been coming off. So here comes the mod podge! 🙂
What a great idea!
I love this idea Lia! Of course, you know I’ll be trying this one out for some of my food gifts 🙂 I’m realizing that this would be great for any kind of small box too (although, the heart shaped box you’ve chosen is by far the cutest!).
All the best!
I have some little square boxes I am going to cover next. 🙂
Love these little washi tape hearts! So cute and of course who could resist them when they are full of chocolate!
Thanks Leigh Anne!
