DIY {{MONSTER}} Valentine's Day Box for cards - School / Classroom party IDEA - How to make tutorial

Valentine's Day MONSTER Box 

The boys each made one for their Valentine's Day party card exchange. 

Since I'm always doing stuff like this the night before, we decided to keep the boxes to reuse them next year. I can't believe I just thought of doing this. 

Spray painted a shoe box (and my hands) and cut a hole on the lower half to leave room for the googly eyes or wiggle eyes :)

I found large wiggle eyes and a thick white foam sheet at Michael's.

I made one tooth and measured to make sure it fit and wasn't too long. 
Then traced the remaining teeth.

I hot glued the teeth down like crazy. I didn't want some big meanie to try to knock or pull them off. Mama wins! 

Added the eyes but it looked a little plain.
We added a couple of Happy Valentine's Day tags and heats to the box.  


4x6 size - 8 tags per print.
Print at your local Walgreens, CVS, print lab or print at home.

Used a 1 7/16 scalloped lever punch or a 1" circle punch. Both purchased at Michael's.
