Every year my kids get to create a Valentine’s Day box for their Valentine’s class party. For this year’s Valentine’s box ideas, I went with a unicorn for my daughter and a dinosaur for my son. I decided to share my creation process with you all plus some free templates!
The templates I am sharing for free come with SVG cut files so you can use your Cricut machine or you can use my colored PDF printables to cut with scissors. If your kids are getting involved make sure to have a pair of kid-friendly scissors for safety. If you are using a cutting machine like Cricut I always let my kids help me load and unload the mat/materials and they love helping in that way!
Cricut Help – Unsure of how to use upload SVG files to your Cricut? I have a step by step tutorial here!
