When Christmas and the holidays are over, I tend to feel bluesy in January. Thank heavens for Valentine’s Day! I start thinking about this lovey-dovey holiday weeks in advance to help me get through the boredom of January. And Valentine Box Ideas are my FAVORITE love crafts to think about. As a child, I always looked so forward to decorating and personalizing my school valentine box, not to mention making the actual valentines. I would go crazy with doilies, glitter and ric rac! I’ve tamed down over the years (just barely), but still love to come up with Valentine Box Ideas for my girls and for fun little gifts for my friends and neighbors. I thought these cute little boxes would make for perfect ‘secret Valentines’, left on loved ones porches.
I’m embarrassed to even include a tutorial (which is below), but I want to show how fabulously markers soak through barry baskets. There are so many fun ways to adapt this craft. Stripes, polka dots, hearts, etc. A perfect little (and personalized) gift box.
As always, if you use my printables or recreate one of my crafts, tag my on social media using the hashtags #LTDprintables and/or #LTDcrafts. I love seeing what your up to!
