Valentine boxes are part of a tradition that has been around for generations of school-age children. Each year, children make Valentine boxes to take to Valentine's Day class parties. There the colorful boxes are filled with candy treats and the all-important Valentine's cards from classmates. While kids love the parties, some of the fun comes in decorating Valentine boxes in their own unique way.
Cover your box in the crepe paper, foil or other decorative covering, and glue it in place.
Attach lace or heart cutouts with glue or tape.
Draw hearts and designs on the box with colored markers.
Cut a slit in the lid big enough to allow the Valentine's your child receives to pass through.
Repeat the decorating process on the lid.
