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!

Can I just say that I LOVE these?  I love them even more because they are no-sew. :)  These would be so fun for school or home!



{sweetheart mailbox} by fiskars

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. 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! :)

  2. 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.

  3. Hi Keirste!
