B-Bops Valentine's Box....

We have a K12 Valentine's Party on Wednesday at the local skating rink. They said each kid could bring a decorated Valentine's box or bag and Valentine's to pass out. We are really excited to go! We decided to make a "purse" for B-Bop and we are still trying to come up with ideas for Buddy's box.... We started with a cereal box and cut a slit in the side...
Then we found some metallic tissue paper left over from Christmas and wrapped the box...
Then we re-cut the slit and reinforced it with tape. We found some pink ribbon (left over from our hair bow making days) and stapled it to each side of the slit (later we covered the staples with crepe paper)....
Then we took strips of crepe paper (left over from birthday parties) and cut slits to make fringe and rolled the fringe with a pencil....
We taped three rows of fringe across the bottom and added our crepe paper heart that we had made earlier in the day for our house decorations AND Wa-La we have our "purse"....
Our original idea was to cover the entire box with pink construction paper and then cover it completely with rows and rows of our fringe to make a "shaggy purse", but then when we saw how cute it looked with the silver tissue paper we decided to just add a few accents!
Happy Valentine's Box making and if you have any ideas for Buddy send them our way (so far we just have the idea of Sponge Bob Square Pants)!!
