A Chinese box that I bought on clearance after Christmas for a quarter becomes a sweet valentine box. Valentine Chinese Box

Approximate Time: 30 minutes


  • Chinese takeout box
  • Embellishments


I got 4 of these adorable polka dotted Chinese takeout boxes for a dollar. I printed off some free digital stamps and colored them in with coloring pencils. I put them on the box and the box lid and then added pink lace. I filled them with coordinating tissue paper and chocolates and i had an extremely affordable gift for four people. 1 dollar for 4 boxes and 3 dollars for candy. 1 dollar for tissue paper. Total cost per each gift. 1.25 Valentine Chinese Box

After serving as Valentine treat holders these cute boxes would be great for holding little treasures or other items, too. Sweet!
