Cupcake Valentine’s Day Box

DIY & Crafts, Holiday Decorating & Crafts

Every year we get the option to create a Valentine’s Day box for class Valentines at school. Some years have been more creative than others, but this year my daughter really wanted to make a cupcake Valentine’s Day box. I always get a little excited when she wants to craft, because she doesn’t really love to do it. It was a simple project, but it does take some time to cover the whole cupcake with tissue paper.

What you need for a cupcake Valentine’s Day box:

  • poster board
  • tissue paper – we used an entire pack
  • hot glue
  • pencil
  • foam dome – I found this one at Joann’s
  • foam ball
  • red paint
  • bucket – I found this one at Dollar Tree
  • Scissors

How to make a cupcake Valentine’s Day box:

Step 1: Start by cutting the tissue paper into 3″ x 3″ squares.

Step 2: Next, fold them around the end of a pencil and add a dab of hot glue on the bottom of the tissue paper.

Step 3: Stick them to the foam dome.

Step 4: Cut a hole in the top big enough for valentines to fit through. Mine is about 4 inches across.

Step 5: Paint the cherry red (foam ball).

Step 6: Cut your poster board into 2 strips to cover your bucket.  I measured from the top of the bucket to the bottom and then cut 2 strips that size. Fold back and forth like an accordion or paper fan. I made each fold roughly an inch thick.

Step 7: Glue the poster boards together so the “accordion paper” is overlapping as shown here. The bucket should not be visible from the outside.

Step 8: Next start gluing the points to the bucket with the hot glue gun.

Set the cupcake part on top, top it off with a cherry and you are good to go. I didn’t glue the top to the bucket so it could be taken off to get to the Valentines.

Happy Crafting!!
