How to Make Your Valentine’s Activity Pack with a surprise Box Craft
Step 1. Cut out the box top and bottom
Step 2. Place a thin coat of glue or paste onto the areas marked ‘apply glue here.’
Step 3. Carefully line up the box bottom above this. Press firmly and evenly so that it is glued down on both sides. With an empty ‘pocket’ in the middle area.
Step 4. Cut out the heart shape. Glue it to the center of the top of the box. Allow your Valentine box to dry.
Step 5. Cut out the boy, girl, cat, and dog. It’s fine to leave some white space around the cut lines.
Step 6. Cut a length of approximately 15-16” of ribbon. Lay this ribbon piece down on a flat surface.
Step 7. Arrange the boy, girl, cat, and dog evenly along with the ribbon, leaving about 3 inches extra above the boy.
Step 8. Tape the backs of the paper figures to the ribbon. Be sure the ribbon stays flat.
Step 9. Next, stack the four figures up one on top of the other, with the boy on the top, then the girl, then the cat, and lastly, the dog. Carefully tuck this stack into the ‘pocket’ of your Valentine box.
Step 10. Allow the extra ribbon to stick out, just under the ‘Pull here’ text.
