Duct Tape Valentine’s Day Box

Duct Tape Valentine’s Day Box Instructions
Pick out the best shape box for your theme. My son used a cube shaped box for his Minecraft Valentine’s Day box and my daughter used a round for her box since we couldn’t find a heart! We went to our local craft store for pre-made boxes but you can use cereal boxes or other boxes you have.
Start taping! My daughter started at the middle and worked her way around the entire box. She is 7 and did it herself, because she is a big girl. After she taped the entire box, we helped her cut a heart shape for the top. Then, we cut a slit at the top of the box for the Valentines to go in. At the bottom front of her box, we cut open a little door so that she could retrieve her Valentine’s at the end.
My daughter’s duct tape Valentine’s Day box turned out really cute and she loves it.
You can even get creative in your home office with duct tape too.
Duct Tape is the one product that I really enjoy using while crafting – as I am not crafty by nature. With duct tape, you can make anything look cool, especially with the fantastic selection of colors, prints,sizes, and styles available now. My kids have made wallets and bags with duct tape as well as decorate their school folders with it as well.
Check out the Scotch Duct Tape gallery for great ideas like the below duct tape envelopes.
