STEP 1:

Trace the top of your box onto a piece of felt, then cut it out and glue it to the top of your box.

STEP 2:

Time to decorate!

Because we found some transparent polka-dot tape I quickly painted the box white using some spray paint. I just didn’t want the brown box showing through my cute polka-dots!

Next we finished decorating our boxes with duct tape, heart stickers, some fun washi-tape, and whatever other embellishments my kiddos managed to scrounge up.

STEP 3:

Time to make it sweet!

And then lastly, we filled them with some of our favorite candies! I put a tiny bit of tissue paper in our boxes to make them a little bit fancier.

STEP 3:

Give it away!

Now you can give your box away to your favorite Valentine…

I hope you enjoyed this Valentine’s Day gift idea!

Make sure to send me some pics if you create your own boxes! I’d love to see how they turn out!
