This Pikachu Valentine Box is the perfect valentine craft for Pokemon loving kids! With this easy to follow tutorial, it's perfect for kids of all ages!



  • Wrap a cereal box in white construction paper and use an X-acto knife or box cutter to cut a hole in the top.

  • Print three templates, the head, body and tail. Cut out each one and trace on yellow craft foam.

  • Use craft hole punchers to make the circles for the eyes (these were 1" and 1/2"). If you don't have them, I've sometimes used coins instead (or you can just draw your own circles)
  • Hot glue the pieces together to make the face, then use a black permanent marker to color the tops of the ears.

  • Trace and cut out the body. Use the marker to draw the toes.

  • The tail was a little tricky. At first I was just going to use a single piece of craft foam but it was too "floppy". I cut a second piece of yellow foam, then a slightly smaller piece of cardboard. I hot glued the yellow foam together with the cardboard in the middle. That did the trick!
  • Glue the body to the cardboard box, then the head. The head should lightly overlap the body. Finally, add the hands. That’s all there is to it. Your Pikachu valentine box is ready!

If you don't have craft foam, you can use construction paper instead. You may just need to glue a popsicle stick or wooden skewer to the back of the ears if they're too floppy.

  1. This is super cute. It seems that the links for head and body templates both go to the body. I can’t get the head to open up.

    1. I’m so sorry about that! I’ve fixed the link and I hope you have fun making your valentine box 🙂

  2. where do I find the templet for the pokemon valentine Pikachu box?

    1. Hi Kristen,
      If you look at the materials list, you’ll see where it says Pikachu template. Click on that and you’ll be able to print. Have fun!

  3. Stephanie says:

    Hi ! can you tell me what size circle punch(s) you used?

    1. Sorry for the delay in answering. The large one is 1″ in diameter and the smaller one is 1/2″.

    Thank you so much for posting this! My son’s teacher wanted the kids to make valentine’s boxes and my son loves Pokemon so this was a hit. I am not a crafty person and it took me less than an hour from start to finish. The only suggestion I’d make is instead of putting your color labels in the center of each template, put them outside of where you’d cut. I decided to use card stock instead of foam and printed each page instead of tracing then cutting and you can see the label colors where the paper is not directly glued to the box. Other than that, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    1. This is a great suggestion! I will definitely do this in the future and will try to find the time to go back and redo the ones that are already posted. I’m so glad your son had fun with this!
