One year we were instructed to bring a shoe box to make into our card holder. Our art teacher helped each student cut a slit in the lid through which we could stuff our Valentine's Day cards. We then wrapped both the box and its lid in white freezer paper and then decorated them with both foam and felt hearts, stickers, and magic marking pens. Domestically Devon has easy instructions on her blog for making a Valentine storage box.

Plaidonline.com uses a cereal box instead of a shoe box and the results are so cute!

Yet another year our art teacher had us use paper plates to make our Valentine's Day card holders. We used the basic white plates and decorated them with paints, markers, crayons, stickers, and construction paper hearts. The girls in the class also glued lace around the borders of the plate. DaycareAnswers.com has directions for several Valentine's crafts including a super sweet paper plate card holder.

I've never used a round container to make a Valentine's Day Mailbox, but All Kids Network has easy instructions for a round mailbox using a Quaker Oats container. You can link here for easy directions at allkidsnetwork.com.
I'm so happy this Valentine's Day tradition of making a Valentine card holder is still in place at the kiddos' school! Happy Valentine's Day from Zoey's Attic!
