If you are not going to use the sweep tool as I did on the Heart Box then the easiest way is to create a carve region on the bottom at the same depth as the height of the feet (I used 1/8" but, a little deeper may look better). Make it a little larger than the bottom. Then, using the circle tool, draw circles inside the carve region where you want the feet. Make these a carve region also with a depth of zero. This will raise the feet to the height of the 1st carve region. Set a draft on each of the feet (I used large). Set the bit optimization to best for everything.
