I bought the little metal mailbox and the scrapbook paper at Target in the Dollar Spot.  I already had the ribbon.  And I put it all together with double sided tape.

Too cute!  That would be fun for the kids to come by and put Valentines in instead of a shoe box.

Valentine's Day Gift Cones from Martha Stewart.

Tools and Materials
Valentine cone template
Medium-weight paper
Scissors
Double-sided tape
Bone folder
Crepe paper
Lace
White glue
Dresdens
Ribbon

Valentine Gift Cones How-To
1. Download and print Valentine cone template. Use template to trace shape onto medium-weight paper. Cut out shape.

2. Apply double-sided tape along long, straight side. Starting at tip, roll cutout into a cone shape.

3. Use a bone folder to burnish inside along taped edge.

4. With crepe paper, cut out a rectangle that measures 2 inches longer than the circumference of top of cone and about 4 inches shorter than length of cone. Tack one bottom edge of short side of rectangle with double-sided tape and stick short sides together. Line inside edge of cone with double-sided tape. Press crepe paper sleeve into inside of cone.

5. Embellish by gluing lace around top of cone and Dresdens to the front. Tip: Place a thin rubber band over Dresdens to hold in place until glue dries.

6. Fill cone with small gifts.

7. Tie a ribbon around the crepe paper to close.

Resources
The medium-weight paper is from Kate's Paperie. The gold lace trim is from Tinsel Trading. Dresdens are from D. Blumchen. All other materials can be found at any major crafts store.

For my sons kindergarten class last year we made his Valentines.  I found individual heart shaped molds at the dollar tree and took the paper off all the broken crayons around the house and melted them in the molds for a big multi colored crayon and cut out red paper and put the crayon on it and wrote different sayings on them such as "you color my world" "have a colorful Valentines day" things like that preheat the oven to 250 degrees put them in for approx. 10 to 15 mins till wax is completely melted here are some pics of us doing this last year.
