Valentines Goody Box from Ice Cream Container
Upcycle and ice cream container into a cute goody box for Valentine's Day!

I am using this a cookie container to give out cookies for Valentine's Day treats and it can be used for storing other things once it is empty. It took about 10 minutes and costs almost nothing to make.

    Rub a glue stick on the container (or use craft glue) and glue the paper to the container. I do not recommend using the glue gun as it give a lumpy appearance. I used mylar gift wrap from Dollar Tree, but other themed wrap or scrapbook paper could be used. Glue the paper to the container.

    For the front, I cut out the letters "LOVE" freehand from the mylar, but any different paper from the wrap applied to the container would do. Glue on with glue stick or craft glue.
