Hot Air Balloon Valentine Boxes

Valentine Box Supplies – 

  • hot air balloon printables (download below)
  • cupid grams (download below)
  • small basket (we found ours at Michael’s, but you can find similar ones here)
  • cute straws – 2 per basket
  • scissors
  • pen
  • hot glue or tape (if children are going to be making this, we recommend using tape so they don’t get burned)
  • ribbons and/or decorative string (optional)

How To Make A Valentine Box – 

  1. First, print off and cut out a Hot Air Balloon Valentine Box printable for each person.
  2. Write the name on the flag, and then glue around one of the straws.
  3. Hot glue or tape the straws onto the back inside corners of the basket.
  4. Hot glue or tape the balloon onto the tops of the straws.
  5. Embellish your basket with ribbons and string if desired.
  6. Optional: Fill out a Cupid Gram, and place inside the basket, along with treats or other Valentine’s goodies!

It really doesn’t get much simpler (or cuter!) than that!

We are using ours for our family Valentine’s Day party – each person will have their own basket, filled with Valentines from Mom + Dad, plus little treats. I’m planning on having everyone fill out a Cupid Gram for each family member – I’m always looking for ways that the kids can say nice things about each other. There is way too much arguing between them, so these little notes might get some eye-rolling from the older ones, but in the end, they’ll love it!
