Easy DIY Classroom Valentine Box

There is one project that lands on this mama’s lap each and every Valentine’s Day without fail…It’s the classroom Valentine box of course! Every teacher has her own spin it, but they always want something for the kiddos to store their classroom Valentines in. Now can I go to town and tackle a craft? Sure. Do I have loads of extra time to DIY it up? Not always. So, when I am time crunched I rely on sort of homemade ideas. Did you know, for instance, that places like Target and Michaels have ready-made Valentine boxes? If you’ve ever tried to fashion a mailbox out of a cardboard, you know how clutch this is. These boxes come with the slot on top ready to go. No box cutters required!

You may remember the Michaels Valentine box that I snagged and decorated last year. I simply added festive heart and flower stickers to decorate it. My daughter loved it and I loved just how little time it took to make. Well, this year is no different. I found my ready-made Valentine box at Target this year and picked up another fun box of Valentine’s Day ready stickers to adorn it with. I really can’t stress how much time this will save you. You can even let you child get in on the fun and decorate it herself. Anyone can put stickers on a box! It’s a perfect project for time challenged mamas and pre-schoolers alike!

    i didn’t know they made boxes like this already with the slot in the top! That would actually be pretty useful for a lot of things. Cute idea, will share with my teacher friends!

    Awh this is adorable, I wish Czech people (where I come from) celebrated Valentine’s Day more – we never used to at school but it would have been lovely – and a good bonding exercise as well! x

    I have seen these before, but never put it together that it could be made at home so easily. That is a great idea for Valentine’s Day. Heck, it would be great for just about any day, honestly.

    This is so cute! My mom was just making a Valentine’s box with her little neighbors the other day. I know the kids appreciate having something cute to take to school!

    I’ve never seen one in the store before. I’ve seen a lot of diys for making items to hold valentines though. I love how simple this is with the pre-made box and glitter stickers.
