Valentine Treat Boxes
Silhouette treat box freebie file and cut 90 of these out of My Mind's Eye paper. I stuck them together with 1/4" Scrappy Tape. Even that strong tape couldn't hold up to the pressure on the box ends, so each end got a little red staple to secure it. I filled each box with some conversation hearts so it gave a satisfying little rattle when shaken.
I made the kids put on their own labels, which I just designed as a print & cut for my Silhouette and cut them out of Avery full-sheet white shipping labels. They make great stickers.
The kids got a little creative while piling up their completed treat boxes...
(I don't know where that comes from.)
And while I'm on the topic of Valentines, here are the containers my kids made to collect their Valentines at school. My daughter decorated a Costco milk box with white Contact paper, ribbon, and rhinestones. My son turned a cereal box inside out and made it into a dragon whose mouth opens to "eat" the Valentines.
