Valentine Box Ideas for Kids

By  | 


Every year we make a Valentine’s Day box for my son’s Valentine’s Day school party. Last year we took the simple route and used a white card box, and some football scrapbooking stickers. We had fun putting the football stickers all over the white box.

I thought it would make a great keepsake box until another child put his foot through the top of it. So much for that idea.

It was a simple, and fun box to make, and it looked really cool until it got stepped on.


This year he decided he wanted a camouflage army Valentine’s day box. I tried to explain to him camouflage and army are not exactly Valentine’s Day material, but he was set.


We used an old boot box, and some foil cake wrap I was saving to recycle. The scrapbook stickers worked so well last year, we decided to use them again this year.

These aren’t the most complicated boxes to make, and I’m sure they would not be a favorite for most little girls. So I found some other Valentine’s Day boxes to share withe you. Here are a couple more really cute boxes I found at Flickr.

One of my favorites is this Thomas the Tank Engine Valentine’s Day box. It’s too cute!
