Cute Valentine Box for Preschool Class Party

Hi moms, I know we have all done these before but this year I am out of ideas... My youngest has to have a valentine box for her class party. I can not be something with a slit (the lid has to come off) but I want something really cute for her. When her sister was in the same preschool I found a heart shaped box at goodwill and we painted it her favorite color and she glittered her name and put stickers all over it. Well she has kept it so my youngest knows what sissy's box looked like... i need some cute different ideas. I only have a shoe box this year. Thanks moms

What can I do next?

When I was young my mom made me the coolest box from a shoebox, I still remember it. She used a gold spray paint and painted the entire box. Then she wrapped the lid in red felt and used lacy ribbons to 'wrap' the box like a present. Then she gave me a sheet of heart stickers and let me go to town. I loved that valentine box and saved it for years and years and finally threw it away when I was in college because it got wet and sort of melted. You could easily do something like that, just let her pick the paint color then go to Walmart and pick out some cheap felt or material to cover it in. They have a ton of ribbons you buy by the yard so you don't have to buy an entire spool. have fun!

Go to a craft store and get a heart shaped box. Right now, because of Valentine's Day... many stores have them now.
It doesn't cost much.

good luck,

So - at our work last year, we did a Valentine's Day box and brought in valentines to pass out - lots of fun, and the person with the most creative got a gift - anyway, the best one was a mailbox - she decorated it like a love bird nest with 2 birds and hearts all over..... It was very cute....... good luck and have FUN

I have taken just a plain cardboard box and made just about anything. You can mold and shape this easily. I also have taken a shoe box and made it like snoopy's house and cut a dog out of white stiff paper and made snoopy and his dog house. Hope this helps.

Could you get a heart-shaped candy box, dump out the candy and use that? it might not be impossible to make a heart shaped box although buying at craft/fabric/dollar store is much easier. Or check the goodwill again. Try oriental trading company's website and see if there's anything there.

Good luck!

my daughter and i made one from a ceral box- we left it open at the top and put velcro on it so it would close. we covered it in red paper and put googly eyes on it nad hearts and pipe cleaner "anntenne" and it was a "love monster". got rave reviews, but just the ceral box clsing with velcro is a good idea!!

buy the largest box of oatmeal you can buy. then get white paper and wrap around it. let her go to town decorating it. we used some really stiff cardstock paper and made a big heart on top the lid comes on and off easily and it holds a bunch of valentines. and the best thing is it is not expensive and they can use it till done and then into the recycle bin it goes.
