The Girl is in 1st grade so they do the valentine exchange. I got a note on Friday that they had to make their own Valentine Collection Box. The teacher suggested a shoe box…something with a lid.
Ok, I don’t have a big supply of shoe boxes. We used one of the last ones for the son’s diorama of the Plains Indians.
The lid is big, and when I put it on. It was hard to put the full sized lid on for me, so I could just imagine what a time she would have.
I really wanted the lid to go on like a shoe box one, but it make the box collapse in on the sides. It just looked unattractive, and was a little tough to put on. So instead we put our lid on the inside (basically an upside down box).
Now it is time to decorate!
Suprisingly she didn’t put a lot of stickers. We used some wrapping paper on bottom, and scrapbook paper on top. Then some stickers (trying to cover tape we needed for the scrapbook paper.)
I’m linking up to the Something to Talk About Link Party today. Go on over and see all the fabulous diy, crafts, furniture makeovers and more.
