I have two little boys, and it's always a challenge around Valentines Day to come up with a good idea for a Valentines Day card box that isn't too girly. Last year, I failed miserably. Their boxes were full on decked out in hearts and glitter and doilies -- they had fun so it was just fine. This year, I wanted them to love their boxes and not be embarrassed when looking back at pictures 20 years from now.
I was at Joann's looking for inspiration, when I came across a piece of Lego scrapbook paper. Light bulb: make their Valentine boxes into actual Legos! Problem solved!
Here's how to do it!
At this point, you could wrap the box in plain paper if you like (to smooth it all out, and make it easier to paint later.) I didn't, but sort of wish I had.
Allow to dry, and before you know it, you will have a super fun Valentines Day box for your little guy (or gal!)
