Shoe Box Valentine Holder

This Friday (more than likely) is the day in which schools will celebrate Valentine’s Day.  During this, kids usually pass out little (and absolutely adorable) Valentine cards.  With all the cards and no where to put them…..let’s just say that’s a big problem.  I’m writing this today to solve that problem by creating the Shoe Box Valentine Holder.

This box is a super easy and fun way for kids to express creativity while preventing a possible disaster of loose Valentines.

All You Need Is: a shoe box, wrapping paper, and any heart/Valentine decorations!  We  mainly used cut out hearts and glitter stickers!

To Make Your Shoe Box Valentine Holder: Wrap a regular sized shoe box in wrapping paper.  I used red because it looks lovey and it acts as a simple background.

Cut a 3 inch rectangular slit in the middle of the shoe box.  This is where the Valentines will go.

Then, cut out hearts from construction paper and use stickers to decorate.  I used tape, but glue would work on the wrapping paper.  When decorating the box, try not to cover the slit.  Also, keep in mind that the hearts can overlap and bend over the edges of the box.  Not every part needs to be covered.

Be open and let your kids go crazy with creativity!

Plus…..for a little extra fun, “write” your child’s name on their box with duct tape (example below).  You can also use duct tape to make a border on Valentines!

Wishing you and yours an amazing Valentine’s Day!

P.S.  I may have a duct tape problem/obsession! 🙂
