Valentine's Day Kids Crafts

What child would not want to receive a treat box filled with yummy candy?
Check out this cute little box!


Owl Treat Box

Hi Imaginisce fans! Today I am sharing with you a kids craft that I am going to make in my homedaycare. In the past we usually decorate paper brown bags, but this year we are going to step it up a notch and create some fun treat boxes!  Here is the cute Owl Treat Box that I made with the Love You More Collection:

Step One:  Find a box in your recycling bin- I used an ego box, but this craft can be done with any similar sized box.

Step Two: Measure all sides of the box and precut the same patterned paper for each side. Have the kids glue the paper to each side. It doesn't matter if its not perfect as the Washi tape from this collection will help it look "perfect".

Step Three: Add some Washi Tape to cover each side of the box. The kids may need help with this step.

Step Four: You can use scalloped border stickers for the Love You More Collection (like I did) or you can precut four borders from the knock out border punches by American Crafts.

Step Five: Add a strip of double sided tape to the top of the box (where there is an opening for the valentines). Have the kids place little strips of American Crafts Twine to create hair for the Owl.  Add another strip of double sided tape and have them add a bunch of pre-punched small little hearts across the top to cover up any double sided tape.

Step Six:  Precut (or pre punch) Owl pieces ahead of time to make assembly easier for little kids. I cut different sized circles for the eyes  (I used different patterned paper, white cardstock and black cardstock) and two different shaped hearts for the nose and a large circle cut in half for the wings. Assemble as shown.

Step Seven:  Create a bow for the Owl if your kids would like a girl owl. Use the  Tazzel Glitter Tape to create the bow and add foam dots in the middle with two shaped hearts. Adhere to the Owl.

I hope you enjoyed the Kids Craft Tutorial! I am sure your kids will love making these!  Happy Valentines day!
