I love making Valentine Boxes and have made everything from a Sponge Bob Valentine Box to a Unicorn Valentine Box. My favorite to this day though is the Monster Book Of Monsters Valentine Box! I liked it so much that I decided to continue the theme and create another Harry Potter Valentine Box this year.
It was so easy and turned out super cute too. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day box idea for Harry Potter fans of all ages. For the younger kids, mom or dad can cut out the shapes and let the kids glue them together. Older kids can totally do it all on their own.

Harry Potter Valentine Box
Start by covering a box with white paper. Just to get a feel for the size I used, this was a Cheez-It box. Don’t forget to cut an opening in the back for the Valentine’s Day cards.
Next up…the hair. This was the trickiest part for me and it took a little trial and error (and a few wasted sheets of black paper). Just play around with it until you have a look that you like. Remember to leave one spot a little open…that’s where Harry’s scar will go.
I went around the sides with the hair.
Next, I started working on the face. To make perfect circles for the glasses and eyes, I just found everyday objects around the house to use for tracers.
I had already pulled out some mason jar lids to make a Minion Valentine box and they were the perfect size. I traced the inside twice and cut out the circles. Then I used a spice lid to trace white circles.
I traced two more black circles with a coin and cut small pieces of white paper to make a small reflection. I glued a long strip of black paper around the front and sides, then glued the black circles over the top. The white circles went on top of those, then the small black circles. Finally I added the small “reflection” pieces.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Harry Potter without the famous lightening bolt scar.
For the scarf, a strip of red construction paper around the bottom works perfectly.
Just glue yellow strips vertically around the top for the finishing touches on your Harry Potter valentine box.
That’s it…pretty easy, right? My little Harry Potter fan loved it!
What should I try next year? Maybe a golden snitch?
