My Old School Valentines Box makes me smile today

Who remembers Valentines as a kid?

My mom gave me an old shoe box and a roll of aluminum foil.

I then proceeded to wrap that bad boy until you could no longer see the ๐Ÿ“ฆ box.

No glue was needed for this part, because if you wrapped the foil just right you could get it to stick to the box with little effort.โค๏ธ

If you were a kid in the 80โ€™s you know what comes next………

The construction paper ๐Ÿ’œ

I always picked pink and purple and I cut

Out a few hearts

That we’re made by folding the paper in half and cutting along the sides.


Now I was ready for the glue and if I was feeling really creative I might even glue on some candy ๐Ÿญ hearts ๐Ÿ’•


Scrolling through my news feed today’s kids would have a really hard time using only Foil and construction paper………….

Or would it be the parents who had a hard time with this?

Either way here’s to the days I still remember and the memories I will never forget๐Ÿ’œ
