Cut out the photo to fit your Valentine box

This is an easy craft, and the materials above can be modified to whatever colors, embellishments, and sizes you like. First, trace the heart shape of the box onto your photo, where you’d like to cut it. Cut the photo out on the line you traced and set aside.

Run a line of glue around the perimeter of the heart box. Take your crepe streamers and bunch them up little by little, adhering to the glue as you go. Once you’ve gotten all the way around, arrange to your liking before the glue sets.

Who will you make DIY Valentine’s Day gifts for?

I really like the way that one of the guests fringed the border on their decorated Valentine boxes. They also added a background before gluing on the photo, and bedazzled the border with rhinestones, excellent idea!
