How to Make Pom-Pom Valentine Card Holder
Step 1: Cut hole in top of box
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 box with red craft paint
Paint the box with a couple coats of red craft paint, letting it dry completely between coats.
Step 3: Glue pom-poms to box lid
I added pom-poms just around the top of the lid, and left the rest of the box painted red.
