Valentine’s Day Treat Boxes

I used to love celebrating Valentine’s Day at school. I can remember creating my own treat bags and embellishing them with glitter and hearts. Nowadays, our kiddos are making amazing boxes – to hold more sweet treats, of course! I’ve created a few ideas using my recycled Hiland Dairy Ice Cream cartons that are easy to decorate for any aged child. So, gather up your supplies and have fun with these Valentine’s Day Treat Boxes!
