DIY Valentine’s Day projects are always something I look for on Pinterest every single year. Now, there’s nothing wrong with store bought Valentine’s, because Lord knows THIS mama has done that herself a time or two. Or three. But there is just something special about a cute, hand-made Valentine that makes my heart smile. I love them because they are eye-catching and you also know a lot of thought and work went into them. Ditto for all of the cute little handmade Valentine candy treats. If you’re like me and you love the look of a DIY Valentine’s Day project, but you don’t have tons of time to spend creating them, these DIY Valentine’s Day Pillow Boxes are just the thing to make for your special Valentine’s or if your child has to take Valentine’s Day cards and candy to school.
