Robot Valentine Boxes

Here is a sweet little homemade Valentine. It is great for kids because they can decorate the boxes. The materials are pretty simple. I had the matchboxes around from another project and then was inspired these awesome matchbox valentines by Brooke. They were easy to make and a fun little project.


Materials Needed: Matchboxes, tin foil, googly eyes, construction paper, pipe cleaners, tape, glue, candy
Step 1: Pull apart each matchbox to cover the outside in tin foil.  Cover the outside box completely, folding the edges into the inside and securing with clear tape or glue.
Step 2: Decorate!  Get creative and make them unique.  It is nice to add a heart here and there.  Pipe cleaners are best attached by either making a small hole to poke them through or bending an end just slightly and taping them down.
Step 3: Fill the robot up with the candy and give them to all of your Valentines.

    these are PRECIOUS! they remind me of valentine’s day as a child. i remember making a box for all of my classmates to put their valentines for me in, and one year my mom and i used foil as our covering! needless to say, it was awesome.
