Here’s a round up of 10 fun and unique decorated Valentine boxes for school.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and that means another class party to buy candy for. And those Valentine cards and treats will need a box.
I remember as a kid my box being basic. VERY BASIC. Wrapped in a brown paper bag and colored with crayon, basic. This will be the first year I will be making a Valentine’s Day box for my son who is in pre-k and also for my god-daughter who is in kindergarten. No Basic Boxes. Can’t wait to share those with you, along with favor ideas and printables. In the meantime, check out some fun ideas, some with links to tutorials.
1. MINION *EASY*
I love this minion. Large kleenex box, construction paper, toilet paper roll/aluminum foil for the goggles and pipe cleaners for the hair. SUPER EASY and SUPER CUTE. Easy to customize. One eye or two. For a girl, change the blue overalls to pink and add eyelashes. Via Jack of All Designs
This one can be used with materials you have at home. Can you recognize the common household items? Head on over to Crayon Box Chronicles for a step by step tutorial. Via Crayon Box Chronicles
3. PIRANHA PLANT
This Piranha Plant from the Super Mario games is a neat last minute option. Click for a tutorial. Instead of painting, consider coloring with a marker or printing. Via Pink Stripey Socks
4. ELSA FROZEN
Cereal box covered with construction paper. Print Elsa picture and cover hair with yarn and sticker rhinestones. If only I had a girl… Via Pinterest
Super cute unicorn box. Love the sparkle and simplicity of it. Check out the tutorial at Via Artsy Fartsy Mama
Castles seem pretty easy to make and can be decorated in endless ways. I love the tealight candle in the right tower and the Rapunzel hair flowing out of the other. Its definitely in the little details. Via pinterest
7. SHAGGY DOG
My SHAGGY Valentine….this is my absolute FAVE because it is simply sooo unique. Just have ribbons in red and pink with hearts. LOVE IT. Click for a full tutorial. Via Half of Gabby
This is the type of box that can be done for smaller kids in kindergarten and slightly older kids in the fifth grade. Its also easy enough to have them do most of the work. Shoe box, construction paper and printer to print the logos and faces and that’s it. Via Pinterest
If you’re really crafty check this one out. Where the cards go is really cool. Definitely something to consider when my son gets slightly older, would work for second grade and up. Via LD Solutions
Now THIS is a Valentine’s Box for the older children and can be personalized towards their interest. Print heavy. Just google app images, print, cut and paste Front slot is great for cards, but the shoe box top can be lifted to add bigger treats. Via Pinterest
