DIRECTIONS

1.Create these Valentine boxes, and your own cards, with friends for loads of party fun. Cut white paper with CRAYOLA Scissors to cover a recycled tissue box. Leave a slot big enough for your Valentine cards to fit. Use Crayola School Glue to attach paper to the box. Dry.

2.On colored construction paper, write messages such as “Deliver [your name]’s Valentines Here” in bright CRAYOLA Washable Marker colors. Glue to the top of the box. Design the rest of the box with hearts, Cupids, or other Valentine symbols.

3.To make Cupid’s arrows, place white paper on a flat surface. Roll paper from the longer side into a tight tube. Glue the edge and carefully wrap rubber bands around the tube to secure until glue dries. Make one more long tube. Make two shorter tubes by rolling paper from the shorter side. Dry.

4.Remove rubber bands. Add designs with marker to the arrows. Cut four paper hearts and attach to the ends for arrow points. Decorate the hearts if you like. Glue arrows to the box. Dry.
