If you are making classroom valentines at your house, odds are that you probably have to create a valentine box to go with them. It's on our list of things to do this week, too!  I've gathered a few really creative and fun ideas that range from a little more detailed to some that are easier and a little faster to put together.  I love that Valentine boxes can really be an expression of your child, depending on what you make, and how it's decorated. It's also just a fun thing that can be done together!!!

10+ Creative Valentine Boxes

Instead of a box, use a tin pail!  I think they make such a fun valentine box...and easy too!

There are a million ideas out there for cute mailboxes like this, and they have been popular for awhile--I can see why!  Target has them in their one spot, so it would be great place to snatch them up for cheap.  You could also try a local craft store.  I love them--so fun!

  1. That was perfect! Thanks

  2. Cute collection Kierste! I love the pail idea for valentine’s rather than a box! It was great to meet you last weekend, we’ll have to connect again soon! :)

  3. Thank you for including my pink pig and monster valentine boxes in this fun round up!

  4. I made the iPod box for valentines day at school. It was funny because everybody got my fake headphones on it and put it in their ears! It was a great valentine box and very easy.

  5. Hi Keirste!
    I found this blog post at the perfect time. My daughter has a school project of creating her own valentine holder. This will give us a great start to brainstorming:) I also share blog posts on my fanpage. I shared your blog post today. I invite you to stop by. http://www.facebook.com/eljahb

    I also invite you to stop by my shop and say Hi! http://www.eljahb.etsy.com

    Thank you for all of the ideas you share:)
    Blessings,
