14 Unique DIY Valentine Box Ideas

Fun ideas for unique DIY Valentine Box Ideas that are the perfect to use as card holders for class parties!

Sometimes I think it's the minor holidays that might put me under as a Mom!

Take February for example -- why is it that EVERY set of boxed valentines includes 24 cards when my kids ALWAYS have 26 kids in their class.


I solved that challenge by finding a great selection of Free printable Valentine Cards for Kids -- print off as many as you'll need.

Now for the next challenge -- coming up with a creative idea for the Valentine Box to corral all those wonderful cards & candy treats!


Easy and unique ideas for Valentine Box and card holders that kids can make on their own!

14 DIY Valentine Box & Card Holder Ideas

I'm sure you're intimately familiar with the idea of the Valentine card holder -- the place where all those precious & somewhat sentimental cards will be deposited during school. 

My kids read & re-read those cards quite a bit in February (it's actually one of our Valentine's Day family traditions).

According to most kids, the Valentine Box --

Has to be Cool! 

Has to be different from all the others! 

And it has to be able to hold all the cards and candy!

According to Mom, it has to be something that the KIDS can pull together :)

AND it has to use items we have from around the house.

A creative recycled art project that doubles as something they can do after school is the perfect option so try one of these ideas along with some of our favorite decorating items which we're sharing with affiliate links.

It's easy to turn an oatmeal canister or a tissue box into the perfect collection bin for those class parties using glitter glue, Valentine stickers and some imagination!
