Valentine's Day Craft

I wanted to make a cute Valentine's craft with the kids so that they would be able to give them out as gifts, well they turned out SO cute that I thought I just had to share them with you all! These would make amazing parent gifts and they were so easy to complete!
We started off by drawing a picture with a thin Sharpie pen.  I let my little one choose who she wanted to draw herself with (she made a couple of boxes). She drew herself with mom, dad, grandma, etc.  If you are doing this as a Valentine's gift in class you can even let your students draw their whole family.
Then we colored in the picture with colored pencils
Meanwhile, I painted a layer of Mod Podge onto the ceramic box from Oriental Trading.
Mod Podge dries very quickly so make sure the image is ready to lay on top.
Once the image was placed on the box, I added another layer of Mod Podge. This just ensures that the picture will stay on the box and it also adds a nice shine finish!
Then we decorated our boxes with stickers. I ordered a TON of fun stickers from Oriental Trading (fun fact--I am a total sticker hoarder).
We added one sticker into the inside of the box and I painted over it with Mod Podge. 
Then we painted the outside of the box. I left out a bunch of different colored paints to choose from. This is just the Crayola paint (washable). The paint dried very quickly (probably within 15 minutes).
Then we used our awesome stickers from Oriental Trading to decorate the outsides of the boxes. They turned out adorable!!! I covered the stickers with another layer of Mod Podge (the Mod Podge dries within 5 minutes).
I LOVE how they turned out!
Such an awesome gift and so easy to make!
I made 12 boxes for about $30. So it would be about $2.50 per child in your class.
If you want to add a card with your gift and you still have leftover stickers, these are my favorite! They are not only cute cards, but they make for cute keepsakes!
Don't forget to pin the image below!

  1. You didn't indicate the size of your circle for the design, I thought it would be a part of the Valentine book packet, but it wasn't there! Thanks for the assistance on this. Robert

  2. Hi!! This little gift was totally different than my valentines book that I’m selling on TpT. These are ceramic boxes from Oriental Trading and the circle that I glued on top is 3x3 :) Hope that helps!

  4. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,Get Your Ex Back, You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
