17 Easy and Adorable Unicorn Valentine Box Ideas…
When our 10-year old announced she wanted a unicorn valentine box this year for her Valentine party, my mouth said, “OK.” And as soon as she smiled and walked out of the room, I was left alone thinking, “oh great, a unicorn box. That should only take us 17 hours to figure out.”
What happened to the good old days when you took a brown paper bag into school, scrawled your name across it with a broken crayon, and called it a day?
Luckily though, I have a Pinterest account. A mom’s secret weapon against all things sounding overly-crafty and complicated. In less than the time it took the one lone tear to fall down my cheek while dreading the valentine unicorn crafting marathon, I had found 17 amazing unicorn valentine box ideas.
So if your little ones decided they wanted a unicorn valentine box this year, too, well then you’ve found not only a sympathetic ear here, but some fab ideas to save you as well.
