Valentine's Day Card & Candy Collection Box Tutorial 

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I don’t want you to feel like you have to go out buy a cute v-day storage box for the craft store. I want to inspire you to either make one for your child or supply your little one with some supplies so they can make their own.

Making a Valentine’s Day Card and Candy Collection Box is really super easy. (Tweet This) If you can wrap a present, you can make a Valentine’s Day Card and Candy Collection Box. 

To start you’ll need:

Valentine's Day Card & Candy Collection Box Tutorial

1. Start by tracing and cutting out a rectangular opening on the top of your box. I used an envelope to determine how long to make my opening and made the opening wide enough to fit a candy bar.

2. Next, cut a piece of sparkly pink wrapping paper twice the width of your box. Then wrap the box with the sparkly pink wrapping paper or a color that works best for your child and secure it with hot glue.

3. Now find the card opening and cut away to wrapping paper covering it. Just made a slit down the middle and fold the excess paper from the slit, into the box.

4. Using scrapbook paper, make a heart the length of your opening. Next, I cut the heart in half and attach one side of the heart to either side of the opening.

After Valentine’s Day, you can use the box to write and receive love notes back and forth with your kids. Just place the box in a central location with some envelopes, pens, and paper.

  1. So cute! My girls want to do something like this for art so I think we will have to. I remember making them in school, now they dont really do them anymore around where I live. Holidays aren't what they used to be! – Jeanine
