DIY Valentine's Day card holder for kids classroom Valentine's card exchange in shape of cardboard tiered wedding cake.

Valentine’s Day is a LOVE-ly excuse to be crafty! Case in point, the iconic Valentine’s Day card box. Sure, the decorated shoe box does the job just fine to bring home those sweet love notes; but what about a tiered wedding cake Valentine’s Day card holder? Oh, yes.

Surprisingly easier to make than it sounds, it’s a great reason to empty out a cardboard box of random collectibles in the garage or fish pieces out of the recycling bin.

I love seeing all the kids walking into school with their homemade Valentine’s Day card boxes. Add this tiered heart-filled beauty to the loving mix!
