How to Make Pom-Pom Valentine Card Holder

Step 1. If you want to box to serve as a Valentine holder, cut a slot in the top of the box large enough to accommodate the cards. To do this, I scored the box with an X-Acto knife and then used a kitchen knife to cut through the box along the scored area. The paper mache box is pretty thick so use caution when cutting through it! 

Step 2. Paint the box with a couple coats of red craft paint, letting it dry completely between coats.

Step 3. Start adding pom-poms to the top of the box with a dab of hot glue or craft glue. I started around the opening and then worked my way out to the edges, adding pom-poms in a random order of sizes and colors.

I added pom-poms just around the top of the lid, and left the rest of the box painted red.
