There are lots of fun memories from grade school but I have to say making the annual Valentine’s Day box ranks up there on my list. I remember always wanting to do some elaborate box but that never happened. I think my Valentine’s Day boxes were just shoe boxes covered in tin foil with heart doilies! I know totally old school! I still that that would be a cool idea for a Valentine’s day box to make a retro tin foil box. Maybe, I can get Lilly on board with that one day .. maybe
Ever since Lilly started school I’ve always loved coming up with something creative for Lilly’s Valentines Day box. This year she picked rainbow loom as her theme and then the brainstorming started a few weeks ago. I love how it turned out and she did a pretty awesome job and I assisted on some parts of the project.
With last weeks shoes replacement of tap shoes and running shoes we were lucky enough to have a shoe box handy! If you follow me on instagram – the shoe replacement was because our 5 month old chocolate lab puppy decided that shoes are the perfect chew toy!! (insert mad face)

white craft paper
clear push pins
rainbow loom bands
We started with a covered shoe box and then traced the blue pieces from the Rainbow Loom
Then we glued on the blue pieces to create the loom and then we added the push pins to create the rainbow loom pegs.
Then Lilly used Rainbow Loom bands to create a fake bracelet for the top of her box.
She used the starburst
What are your favorite Valentine’s Day traditions?
So happy I have one thing crossed of my list for next week!
