Valentine's Day box

On top of prepping Valentine's for his classmates, we also ma ade a box for Landon's friends to put Valentine's for him in, if they so choose. 

It was a pretty simple concept, and we started by wrapping a shoe box in brown craft paper.  The type A in me wanted to decorate the whole box.  I had visions of a cute little banner spelling out Landon's name.  Cutting out some hearts from some adorable Valentine's paper I got at Hobby Lobby and making a perfect slit in the top of the box. 

My independent 5 year old had other plans and took over all aspects of decorating.  It is his box after all, and it turned out exactly the way he hoped.  If my baby's happy, Momma's happy!
