Two of my daughters have already told me that they need to bring a decorated container to school to hold their valentine cards. Sara came up with this flower pot valentine card holder made from an ice cream container. It’s just big enough to hold your valentines and small enough to transport to school.

Supplies: an empty and clean ice cream container with lid, an exacto knife, pink and brown spray paint or acrylic paint, some sucker flowers (tutorial here)

1. Using an exacto knife, cut half of the lid away and carefully punch out 3-5 holes on the other side.
2. Paint the ice cream container pink or red and the lid brown. Let dry.
3. Place the lid back onto the container and poke sucker flowers in the holes.
