Valentine Holders from Recycled Cereal Boxes

It’s Valentine’s Day!  Happy day to you!
I turned the girls loose and allowed them to design their own Valentine’s Day boxes!  These are simple to make but kept them entertained for a while!


  • Empty cereal boxes
  • Paper and scraps
  • Stickers, doilies, other embellishments you have on hand
  • Glue
  • Scissors

1)  Cover the box with paper.

2)  Add embellishments!

3)  If desired, use a hole punch to add ribbon to the top for a handle (we haven’t done this yet)!  We also added their names at the top with stickers.

Each side looked different, and it was interesting to see how each girl’s box fit her personality!
