We received a note from Annika’s Kindergarten teacher that their class would be decorating Valentines boxes together. Each kiddo needed to bring in a container that they could add stickers and use markers to decorate. Annika was so excited for her special Valentines box. Although we ran into a bit of a snag when we couldn’t find a single shoe box and the recycling had just been picked up so no cereal boxes either. Not discouraged, I kept searching. My persistence finally paid off when I came across the perfect container, a peanut tin from Costso.
It was so simple to transform into a Valentine holder. We removed the original peanut label and wrapped the tin in brown craft paper.
Using a sharp knife, I cut a mail slot in the lid. Annika wanted a handle so I cut a small X on each side, slipped the ribbon through and tied a knot in each end to secure it.
Annika was so happy with the results and can’t wait to decorate it with her classmates. I’m excited to see how it turns out.
