Did you ever make Valentine boxes in elementary school?

This cute vintage inspired valentine box actually started out as a Christmas box…until I started thinking of fun memories of receiving valentines from classmates when I was in elementary school. Kids in the class would bring in a homemade decorated container to put valentines in that we handed out to each other. One year I made a pink papered choo-choo train out of an empty round oatmeal container. I added wheels that I cut out of a cereal box. I also added a smokestack {an empty spool of thread} complete with cotton balls to look like steam was coming out of the chimney. Isn’t it funny the things we remember from our childhood?

Maybe I will use this new box for storing all of my pretty Valentine’s Day materials, unless of course, you have a better suggestion for me!
