It’s big enough to stand out and hold all those treats but small enough that your child can carry it into school on their own.

How do you make a Valentine box?

It’s actually not hard to make a Valentine box. You can easily use recycled materials to make it happen. You just need a sturdy box, some fun decorations, a couple of googly eyes, sharp scissors, and some glue and/or tape, plus a few more items that you’ll see below.

And if you have creative minds in your house, you can easily use their imagination to make their visions become a reality. To make a robot, gather up the simple supplies below.

Supplies needed:

  • One larger box, this one is about 8 in square
  • Two smaller boxes that can be used for the legs, I cut these ones to be about 4 to 5 inches tall
  • One roughly 5-inch box to be used for the head
  • Either silver foil bubble wrap or tinfoil
  • X-Acto knife or scissors
  • Hot glue gun

First, you’ll need to decide where you would like to make the cut out for the cards to be inserted on the body of the main box. (Make certain to make it long enough and wide enough for cards and treats!)

Once you have that decided, you’ll want to use the standard gift wrap tape as your guide and aim for the opening to be about 4 inches long to accommodate different sized envelopes. Cut the opening with scissors or an X-Acto knife carefully. (parental guidance needed for this portion!)

Before you start wrapping the box to create the body, make certain that you have enough to get it all the way around.

The easiest way to wrap the box is to think about how you would wrap a gift and use the foil as wrapping paper. Then use the hot glue gun to hold it in place. Just be careful not to burn your fingers!

When the foil is secured in place and the hot glue has dried (this only takes a minute) use your fingers to feel for where the mail slot opening is and carefully cut the foil in a way that would allow you to fold and tape it back inside the box so you have a nice clean opening. If the tape does not seem to hold in place you could carefully hot glue here as well.

Now it’s time for the feet! Start by wrapping just the sides of each box, not the top or bottoms, that make contact with the body. This will help keep the box sturdy and prevent it from tipping over.

Then you’re going to hot glue the tops of the feet boxes to the bottom of the body. Quickly check that the robot is balanced can stand on its own, adjust the feet placement if needed.

Tip: if you are having a tough time getting the robot to stand still, you could try gluing the bottoms of the feet/boxes to a flat surface like a paper plate, lid…

Cut 2-inch strips of the red paper for the two arms. Fold the paper alternating back and forth to create a zig-zag and then glue the arms into the space between the head and body of the boxes.
