DIY: Valentines Box and Cards

Reyna's Valentines Box and Card for School


Heart Day Everyone!

Advance Valentines greetings to all of you! I'm madly in-love with my daughter's school project for their Valentines Party next week. Together, we made this Valentines Box and Cards. I'm telling you! It was so much FUN! I love how my daughter getting excited to make her classmates cards. Starting off by cutting their cute pictures and writing names on the card. My daughter also perfected to draw the heart shape, just super CUTE!. I can't help myself to share the whole experience here on my blog.

 The final product of our mag-ina combine is effort is priceless. It also gives us time to bond, talked, laughed and eat candies together (hahahah) I let my daughter design her Valentines Box and I must say its perfect! I did wrote her name and put her picture on the top of the box and that's pretty much what I did. I also make sure that she spelled the name correct on the cards. It give me excitement seeing the final product and she can't wait to give the cards to her classmates. As a parent seeing my kids full of excitement give a boost of energy and inspiration.. totally LOVE the whole experience.

Join the excitement! us as we make our first Valentines Box and Cards! wink:) If you need some Shoe Box inspiration you can check my post HERE.:)

Things you'll need:

Shoe Box/ Gift Boxes

Spider Man Cards
Stickers/ Embellishment
Glue
Heart Tapes
Pencil


Directions:

1.) I used store bought Valentines Box (save me money buying wrapping paper ) Althoug I'd like to make everything from scratch buying ready-made from the store will save you time and money.  If you decide to make from scratch check my blogpost HERE.
2.) The next you should do is DECORATE the box- Yup! the most fun and exciting part that your kids will enjoy. I let my daughter glue the heart and owl on the side of the box.
3.) On the TOP of the BOX- I put her little photo between the owl and the heart. I also wrote here name below and decorate with more embellishment.
4.) I let my daughter write her classmate names on the cards and let her practice cutting their photo and glued them on the card as well. ( note: the cards are store bought but you can totally make at home)
5.) We stick heart stickers everywhere and DONE! The Valentines Box and Cards is ready.:)


My daughter is pretty excited about their Valentines Party! She's so excited to give the cards to her classmates and she will be receiving cards from them as well. How FUN right?

  5. Loving that Valentine's Day box! Kudos to the teacher for having the V-day concept. So they put the boxes lined up and their classmates put the cards there? It revives the classic way of giving greeting cards. :)
