We have all been there before.  The night before your child’s class Valentine’s Day party and you are trying to put together a valentine mailbox or valentine bag to keep all the valentines contained as students share with other classmates!  Well worry no more!  These EASY Valentien Keepers are perfect!

Supplies for Easy Valentine Keepers:

*When purchasing disposable plates, be sure that the plates are the same color on both sides.  Some are colored on the top but white on the back.  You want ones that are colored on both sides.

Start out with 2 plates and cut one of them about 1/3 from the top, straight across.
