Valentines box

Take a box....we used a fiber one box...it doesn't matter though.....

....and cut a hole in the top.

Then cover it in brown paper

I then sketched a head of a dog on a white piece of paper.

Then cut out 2 black hearts for the ears and 1 red heart for the nose.
I laid it all out before I started to glue anything

I originally cut out a bow tie, but it ended up being a hair bow....we decided we wanted a girl dog

I took a dowel and hot glued in to the head and neck to hold it together.
Then I glued the dog to the box.

Should look something like this.
Then I wrote her name with a pencil and used Elmers glue and traced it.

Then pour glitter over the top of the glue and shake it off.

It should look about like this...

I cut out circles for the paws and lips to decorate. You can cut out any shapes you wants.
Now paste on all your cut-outs and add any stickers or embellishments you want.

Your finished product!
So cute!
Hopefully we win the contest at school!!!
