Valentine Card Boxes

This year I only have one Valentine card box to complete.  My son says he would like another I-pod box like the one I made when he was in 3rd grade.  We'll see...
If you are trying to come up with an idea, here are a couple of ideas I have come across.
From Danielle's Place, you can recreate your own Valentine love bug out of a milk jug.
Using a graham cracker box (or another box similar in shape and size), create a penguin like found on Crafts N' Things.
Maybe you're looking for something a little more simple?  If that's the case, here's an idea for making a suitcase looking card holder from Plaid Online.
If you have a child who is really into sports, maybe one of these ideas will do the trick for you...
A basketball box from Scrap Happens.
or this football one from PTIT Chef.  I would of course have to find a way to turn it into a Denver Broncos theme though!
In my classroom, we make jumbo card envelopes.  I take about a 18" x 24" piece of tag board and fold it in half so that when finished it measures 18" x 12".  After punching holes in the sides, the kids have to sew the sides and then decorate their envelope with die cut flowers or hearts I have punched out or draw things they love on it.  I will have to snap a picture of one when I go to school tomorrow so you can get the visual more clearly.
So how do you do things in your classroom?  Do you assign it to be an at home project or is it something you put together in class?  I'd love to know.
