DIY Valentine’s Day Box Ideas

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so that can only mean one thing…it’s time for to come up with some fun ideas for Valentine boxes. I mean, we love all the decadent Valentine desserts, but making the card box is really the best part of the holiday!

You’re never too old to get creative and and I have just as much fun making these crafts as the kids do. I do have good reason to get carried away because my homemade Valentine Boxes have been featured on Sarasota’s Suncoast View for the last five years (SO much fun…you can see one of the earlier segments below).

That means the pressure is on to come up with creative valentine box ideas every year…but that’s half the fun anyway!
