My daughter has a Valentine’s Day get together on Monday, where they will be exchanging cards, and I thought it would be fun to put together a Valentine’s Special Delivery Box to keep all of her special gifts in.
I am all about convenience and completing a task fast, so this is a no glue project making it ready to use immediately.
I went to Michael’s on Friday and picked up foam stickers with all kinds of heart shapes (at the time they already had the Valentine merchandise on sale, so it was like 40% off or more).
So here is what I used to make our Valentine’s Special Delivery Box:
– A child’s size shoe box (you can use what ever you have)
– 3 Sheets of 8×10 Pink Construction paper
– Foam Stickers
I had to put together the box for my 3 year old, because she does not have the skill to do this yet, and not quite ready to use scissors. FYI, depending upon the age of your child, you may need to supervise.
If I could do this over again, I would have the largest construction paper so no cutting would be required. However, I had to improvise, and basically cut enough paper to cover the ends, taped them down, and then covered the rest of the box with a full piece of paper.
I then wrapped the top. (Note: Wrap the box like a present and tape all the loose ends down.)
This is what the box should look like apart.
This is what the box should look like together.
I then handed this over to my three year old and let her do the decorating.
She had a blast and can’t wait for her exchange on Monday.
I hope you enjoy this project as much as we did.
