I don’t know if you are like me, but I always have good intentions of getting things done early, and then it just doesn’t happen. Last year, we needed to make Valentine boxes for three of my boys. We were making those boxes the night before. That’s just how it happens at our house. Anyone else? Since I didn’t get the boxes done until the night before last year, I decided they’d be a great thing to share on the blog this year. I guess you could look at it as I’m just working really far ahead…or I’m really behind. Either way, it’s real life, and it happens quite often around here. 😉 Anyway, today I’m sharing this super easy and simple Heart Eyes Emoji Valentine Box with you. Last year, one of my boys was totally into emojis. He had to do 100 things for the 100th day of school, and we helped him make and 100 emojis poster. So he was excited to take this box to school for Valentine’s day.

We used 12x12x12 boxes and just used scrapbook paper to cover the sides, and attached it with packing tape. Then I cut out the hearts and and mouths (half cirlces) from cardstock using the Cricut Explore Air 2. We just used a glue stick to attach those to the box. On the top of the box we cut out the half circle for the hole where the Valentine’s go in.
It turned out to be such a cute Valentine box, and my son loved it! I loved it because it was quick and easy, didn’t take a lot of time or supplies, so mom and son were happy!
