How to Recycle Valentine’s Day Candy Boxes 

Everyone seems to get a beautiful box of candy for Valentine’s Day. Sometimes these boxes are just too pretty to throw away, but did you know you could actually recycle those candy boxes? There are several ways you can recycle Valentine’s Day candy boxes. All you have to do is be a little creative and you’ll soon think of hundreds or ways to recycle Valentine’s Day candy boxes. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.

First of all, you can recycle Valentine’s Day candy boxes into a memory box. This is a great way to remember each Valentine’s Day. You can place the dried rosebuds from a bouquet of flowers in the box along with movie tickets, pictures, and of course Valentine’s Day cards. Years from now, you and your partner will look back on the memory boxes you’ve collected over the years and laugh and smile as you remember those joyous moments.

Another fun way to recycle Valentine’s Day candy boxes is to make a candy decorated box. This is such a fun way to recycle candy boxes because you can then fill the box with homemade treats the next year. Just save your Valentine’s Day candy boxes until the next year. When the holiday rolls around again, grab a glue gun and your partner’s favorite store-bought candy (preferably packaged in holiday wrappers) and glue them to the box in a decorative pattern. Once the box has dried, fill the inside with white tissue paper and homemade goodies.

A great way to recycle Valentine’s Day candy boxes is to use them in a scrapbook. Just detach the flat heart-shaped part of the box and use it as a background on one of your scrapbook pages. This would be the perfect page for pictures of your and your sweetie.

One last way to recycle Valentine’s Day candy boxes is to use them in a collage. This makes a great gift for you to give your partner next Valentine’s Day or for an anniversary. Just detach the flat part of the heart-shaped box and place it into a poster frame along with other special items from your relationship. If you want to make this collage look even better, recycle a piece of red fabric and place it around the poster frame backing to create a beautiful red backdrop. You could even recycle other items to make this collage, such as Valentine’s Day cards.
