Lego Valentine Box

Come knew it would either be Star Wars or Lego.
Last year was Heart Vader and so this year we went Lego.
Using your everyday Nike shoebox, we covered them with wrapping paper.  If I were to do it again, I'd go for more durable/thicker wrapping paper/butcher paper.  We used gift wrap paper we bought at Target.  It's great for the color, but pretty flimsy.
Then the boys traced out circles on a cardboard box using the inside of a used ribbon holder.  It was the perfect size. If we had planned ahead at all, I would have started collecting large bottle caps like the ones on Gatorade or the like.
They cut out a few of the cardboard circles and I cut out the rest.  We cut out 32 in all.  Because we were covering the sides with paper, we put a circle on the bottom, some scrap cardboard in the middle and another circle on top.  This helped give it more height with out the added trouble of cutting out 16 more circles.  We covered the circles with more paper and glued them to the top of the box.
  I printed out the boys' names on the cricut and they glued them on themselves.  Full disclosure...normal everyday elmers glue doesn't stick so well to the glossy paper.  By the time we got to school, JACK was missing the C.  Another reason I'd go with sturdier paper next time.
All in all a quick and easy Valentine project.
Wonder what we'll do next year?
Will share these Lego Valentine Boxes with the parties in the sidebar >

  5. It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

    Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

    In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

    Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

    It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.

    He will make it his life long mission to cherish and please you...

    And he will pursue your love to the ends of the earth.

    Here’s a video you won’t want to miss that shows you how to become your man’s deepest obsession:

    Ready-made boxes and packaging can be expensive, so we don’t usually consider them an option for vape businesses. It can seem like customization isn’t worth it, but a small investment in custom vape cartridge packaging is smart for any business.
