Project #19 #20 Valentine's day boxes

Remember how we said that kids projects would count? Well, I helped my daughter sew this bag for her Valentine's Day box. She did all the sewing herself and was so pleased with it...
Until she saw what her brother came up with...

He, of course, didn't want to do anything remotely similar to his sisters. (Cause that would be too easy for mom, right?)
So, eventually we came up with this idea. He is an avid reader, so his box involved a book you could open. Through the plastic, you can see the book covers from some of his favorite books that we copied and put inside. We decided it needed some light, so I found some battery operated tea lights in my junk drawer. They were left over from Halloween, so they glowed orange, but they did the job.
There was an opening at the top to drop Valentine cards into. We are saving this (it was originally going to be made into a pinata. and we built it all out of cardboard) so we can make it over into something for my daughter for next year.
