Valentine Box Ideas

Valentine Crafts for Children

1. Valentine Box with Crepe Paper Flowers – This Valentine box is absolutely gorgeous!  It’s an oatmeal canister covered in scrapbook paper.  Cut a slit on the lid and cards can be dropped in or if the lid is too big simply take it off.

2.  Birdhouse Valentine Card Box ~ Make a fun birdhouse Valentine card box using an old box.  Paint the box, add punched hearts and decorations.  Voila!

3 & 4.  Valentine Mailboxes for School ~ The first box is made from a frozen waffle box and an extra cereal box for the rounded lid.  I love how the rounded lid makes it resemble a real mailbox.  The second box, iPod, is also made from a cereal box.  Very creative don’t you think?!

5.  Robot Valentine Box ~ So stink in’ cute!  I *heart* this lovebot box.  This cutie uses two boxes, paper towel dowels, silver paint and pipe cleaners.  This would also be adorable as a centerpiece.

6.  Monster Valentine Box ~ The boys are gonna love this one!  Spray paint an old box or cover with construction paint.  Cardboard heart feet and toilet paper dowels for the arms.  The styrofoam googly eyes are fantastic.

7.  Valentine Mail Pouch {tutorial} ~ Look at this super cute mail pouch knock-off from Pottery Barn.  If you have scraps on hand this would be perfect for you.  You can attach this pouch to the back of a chair.  How fantastic is that!

8.  Cute Valentine’s Day Mailbox {craft} ~ This Valentine’s mailbox is absolutely adorable.  I love the flag on the side of the box that can be moved up and down.  You can dress it up or bling it out with ribbon, buttons, rhinestones and do-dads.
