On a recent trip to one of my favorite craft stores I found a cute Valentine shadowbox craft.
Remember that Izabel is the crafty part of our duo, not me!
I deliberately look for easy crafts, while she finds much more advanced ones to do.
With this craft, there are just a few materials needed, besides the shadowbox.
You’ll need Valentine stickers, alphabet stickers, card stock or scrapbook paper, lightweight paper of any color or colors, a glue stick, and scissors.
Take the alphabet stickers and spell out a message. I went with “I” and “you,” placing a heart-shaped sticker in the center.
Using the card stock or scrapbook paper, which is what I used, trace the sides of the shadowbox, cut out the correct dimension, and glue them.
I had to cut two separate pieces for the side of my shadowbox that had hinges.

To those sides, I added more cute stickers. That’s one area where Izabel and I agree: We love our stickers!
On one side of the shadowbox, using the alphabet stickers, add the word “because.”
Inside the shadowbox, you are going to place strips of paper where you list reasons why you love your Valentine.
You may have seen a similar idea on Pinterest, where you can make a gratitude jar.
The shadowbox would also be perfect for that, decorated differently.
Either way, enjoy decorating and giving a sweet gift!
