BWAH! This hilarious photo-enhanced shoebox makes classroom Valentines even more fun to collect! From Gina Rau of Feed Our Families:
I left my husband in charge of making our daughter's Valentine box for school…this is what he came up with! It was the hit of the class!
All you need is a blown-up photo, a shoe box, a glue stick, and some scissors. And a sense of humor.
Gina added: "Don't judge me on this one." I JUDGE YOU AWESOME, GINA.
Who's got ideas for Valentine collection boxes? (I usually send my daughter to school with a used gift bag and call it done.)

Valentine sanity check: Clever homemade Valentines are wonderful…if you love doing this sort of thing. If you feel the stress or "pressure to perform" ratcheting up, remember that a box of store-bought Valentines (and a paper bag for collecting them) is not a sign of "slacking," it's a choice to focus on other things you care about more. — Asha
