Today we're sharing this Valentine's Box created by mambi Design Team member Megan McKenna, meant to house all the Valentines and love notes one receives around February 14th. It makes for a quick and easy holiday craft to complete with kids, gift to a teacher for the classroom, or keep at home to reduce the paper-hearts clutter!

About this project, Megan writes:
"Love is in the air! Single or not, I've always loved Valentine's Day. The candy, the cute decorations, the cards, and of course the paper crafting supplies that are readily available! I created this box you can use to keep all of your child's Valentines when they have their class parties. If you don't have any children, you can use this to make a "Box of Love" for your loved one, or even your best friend! The ideas are endless and it is very simple to make. Here's what I did...
I took a black photo box from Michael's which was very inexpensive and I cut an opening for the Valentines to be able to go in. I chose black because I knew what stickers I was going to be using on it: the 'So Happy' mambiSTICKS white clear sticker value pack. Against the black photo box, it creates a chalkboard look, which I LOVE! I added color by scattering the glittery 'Love Hearts' mambiCHIPS™ around the box. The letters I used to spell 'Megans Valentines' were the uppercase 'Jewel Tones' and the 'Primary Solids Lowercase' mambiSTICKS™. I love these letter packs because there's so many of each letter and each color in each pack so they are bound to last you for a handful of projects!"
