14 Easy Valentine Box and Card Holder Ideas

Fun ideas for unique and easy Valentine Boxes that are the perfect way to hold cards & candy from class parties!

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

Take February for example, either I'm trying to find 100 items for the kids to bring for the 100th day of school or I'm wondering how it is that EVERY set of boxed valentines includes 24 cards when my kids ALWAYS have 26 kids in their class.

I solved that last challenge by finding a great selection of Free Valentine Cards for Kids that you can print yourself -- as many as you'll need :)

Now for the next challenge -- coming up with a great idea for the Valentine Box!

14 Easy 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. 

According to most kids --

It has to be Cool! 

It has to be different from all the others! 

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!
