Homemade Cards for Different Occasions : How to Make a Kid’s Valentine’s Day Card Box


When your kid comes home from school with
all his Valentines, where are you going to put ’em? I’m going to show you a way to make
a quick and easy Valentine’s box for your child so they can store all their Valentines
that they get. I’m Janet Casto, your independent demonstrator with Stampin’ Up!. Here’s the
first thing we’re going to do. First, what I like to do is when I make boxes and things
like this, I like to have a template. So, this is my template. And, it’s a piece of
paper that is 11 by 4 inches, I’ve cut it and I’ve scored it at 2, 5, 7, 10 and then
2 on the long side. I’ll show you again how, what I mean there. I’ve taken my card stock,
it’s 4 inches wide by 11 inches long, and then I’m going to take out my cutting blade
and I’m going to score it at 2, 5, 7, 10, and then I’m going to turn it to the side
and again I’m going to score it at 2 inches. And it’s easier if I flip it over and then
go ahead and score it at 2. Now, the next thing I want to do is take my paper snips
and cut in each one of those scores to the fold line. So, I’m going to cut in here, here,
here and then this last tab I’m going to cut off entirely and then just make a point on
this one. Now, we’re ready to put the box together. Before I do that, I want to stamp
it. So, I have my Valentine stamp here and I’m going to do a tone on tone stamping here.
So this is real red on real red and I’m just going to randomly stamp my hearts all over
the box. You could have the child put their name on it, you could put the date of the
you know the year that the Valentine cards were given. The next thing I’m going to do
is just fold it on up with a little bit of adhesive, stick these two ends together, those
are your tabs. These two ends just go in, in. You just need one more bit of adhesive.
You have a Valentine’s box and when your child comes home with all his Valentines they can
stick ’em right in that box and he has a place to store all of his memories. I’m Janet Casto
your independent demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! and I hope you and your child get to make
this cute Valentine’s Day box.
