Minecraft Valentine Box

Special thanks to Valentine’s Day with Plaid Crafts via Blueprint Social for sponsoring today’s project.

Minecraft Valentine's Day Mailbox

Valentine’s Day is almost here! In Little Crafter’s class, all the students exchange Valentines with each other and he wanted to have a place to keep them all. His current obsession {like most of his friends} is Minecraft, so I thought it would be fun to try and create a special mailbox for him using that theme. Whenever we make something that requires a box or can, we do our best to “go green” and reuse things we already have on hand, so this time we used an empty K-cup box! The opening and shape are just perfect for our project, don’t you think? Keep reading to see how to make your own!

– Mod Podge {I used the Gloss formula, but matte works too}
– Apple Barrel Paint
– Card Stock in assorted shades of green and brown
– Paper Cutter
– Sponge Brush
– Empty K-Cup Box


Step 1: Paint your box green and let it dry completely.

Step 2: Cut your cardstock into 1 1/2″ squares. You will need approximately 67 squares to cover the entire box.

Step 3: Spread Mod Podge onto the sides of the box and apply your squares in any pattern you like.


Step 4: Trim any squares that hang over the edges.


Step 5: Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over the entire box.

Ta-da! That’s all there is to it…easy peasy, right? And it’s sure to be a hit with the kiddos, since from what I’ve seen, Minecraft is popular with “kids” anywhere from 5-35 years old!
