Comments Off on Classroom Valentine Box: Rubik’s Cube
My 7-year-old daughter, Izzy, had the most perfect idea for a Classroom Valentine Box: make a Rubik’s Cube version. After telling her Aunt Kari all about it, Kari gave her a square box that she had just purchased at Michael’s Crafts. So, we set about to make a Rubik’s Cube Valentine Box. Turns out it was pretty easy and the end results was just like Izzy expected.
Square Box (Michael’s Crafts)
Colored construction paper
Black Duct Tape
Clear Packing Tape
Paper cutter or scissors
Step #1: Cover the corners and edges of the box with black duct tape…or you can just spray paint the whole thing black. (Izzy isn’t a fan of the fumes so we opted to use duct tape.) I put two strips vertically across each side and two strips horizontally across each side so NO white would show between the Rubik’s Cube squares.
Step #2: Cut the construction paper into squares. We measured the box and then divided by 3 and then subtracted a 1/4″…basically our squares ended up being 2.75″. Cut 9 of each color.
Step #3: Grab a glue stick and glue on the squares. Izzy’s box has a lid so we had to cut some extra pieces for the sides of the lid. It was a pretty painless process though. This is a little girl who needs everything perfect!
Step #4: Cut a rectangle in the top for little Valentine’s to be placed into the Rubik’s Cube!
Step #5: Izzy was afraid some of the paper squares might come off while taking it to school, so we covered the whole thing in clear packing tape. Worked like a charm!
While I was out that night, my sweet girl thought her plain Rubik’s Cube box needed some personality so she created a little face for it!

This comforter is amazing! I was getting too warm with my down comforter but still wanted something soft, and this was the answer. It’s very light, yet still provides enough warmth that I’m only using this with a flat sheet. It fit perfectly in my duvet cover and comes with loops on each corner and […]
Exactly what I was looking for! I live in Miami so I’ve always been looking for bedding that won’t capture too much heat or any at all. I’ve tried a bunch in the past but THIS IS IT. It’s truly light-weight and perfect to put inside a duvet. It lays pretty flat and isn’t puffy […]
It is stunning. I love the dramatic look. We wanted to blend in the 70″ TV. The curtains are not lined but still seem to do the job.
These are TRUE blackout curtains!!! FINALLY I found some curtains that you truly cannot see through. This is (almost) exactly what I was looking for! I went through several other curtains that claimed to be blackout curtains but really, they still let a lot of light through. I had to return several before finally finding […]
