12 Easy Valentine Boxes for School

It’s nearly that time of year and the kids will soon be bringing home their lists of classmates for Valentine’s Day. This means they’ll also want to make a super awesome Valentine’s Day box to put all their Valentines in for the big day.

My usual first reaction to this “assignment” is SIGH. That is mostly because I’m not a crafty lady. BUT that’s what Pinterest is for, right?!

Making a DIY Valentine box really doesn’t have to be a headache! AND if you’re like me, you probably have a kid that loves dropping these sorts of things on you at the last minute. Well, worry not because there is a box for that too!

You probably already have most of the supplies you’ll need to bust one of these DIY card boxes out, and by the end of this post, you can get to work. Make sure to get your child involved as well so they can appreciate the box to the fullest!
