DIY Valentine Box

We were **so** excited to make our own Valentine boxes this year. It all started with a baby wipe box:

            I opened it up and cut out the part that you pull the wipes through:
 We measured the sides and cut-out some construction paper:
We glued the construction paper to the sides of the box:
 We added some Valentine stickers and a name label:
The box was perfect for stuffing with Valentines:

We had a lot of fun making this!

Mini Heart Cheesecakes

We don't do anything big for Valentine's Day. We get each other a little something and I make my husband's snacks for work a little more special by adding heart-shaped appetizers. We'll have nice meals as a family that day, including heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast, and I'm finding a few more ideas this year, (such as heart-shaped raviloi.) We might watch a movie together. I saw and made this love potion for our drink last year, so I'll surely be doing that again. Between now and then, I've been searching the Internet for some other ideas, and having fun pinning them on Pinterest. I found these delicious little cuties on thehappierhomemaker.com
