These surprise heart boxes are so cute! They are perfect for Valentines day but make sweet gift boxes all year round, and are a fun origami project to make. I have two varieties to share with you today – the geometric heart surprise box and the peach heart surprise box.

Print out the sheet for each box and carefully follow the instructions to fold your box up into an adorable heart design. You can then add your choice of secret message into the bottom of each box, and fill the box up with a few little treats or surprises.
