Valentine’s Day is no longer just for romantic partners. Each year, more and more Valentine’s Day activities are being offered for dogs and their humans. From singles party meetups to best friend vow ceremonies and everything in between, dogs are becoming the forefront for many Valentine’s Day plans.

In celebration of this love-filled holiday – where your dog may receive more Valentine’s Day cards than you, we put together this easy DIY Valentine’s Day card box. You can use this DIY box to store all the cards your dog received.

Items Needed:

  • Card box (optional slit at top to easily slide exchanged cards in)
  • Paint (optional – if you want to change the color of your box)
  • Small bottle of Mod Podge and brush

  • Various Valentine’s Day stickers and/or numbers stickers

  • Photos of your dog

Steps:

  1. Paint your box your desired color. Many of these boxes from the craft store come in white, red or pink in anticipation of Valentine’s Day.
  2. Arrange your photos and/or stickers where you would like them placed on the box. Once decided, stick your stickers onto the box and Mod Podge over the stickers for extra security.
  3. Mod Podge (glue) each photo onto the box. Paint the back of the photo and place it onto the box.
    Once on the box, paint the front of the photo. Depending on what Mod Podge you have, it may appear white over your photo, but it will dry clear.
  4. Place your box in an area that your dog (or kids) cannot reach and allow 24 hours to dry.

Now you’ve got not only a fun, personalized Valentine’s Day box to take to a party, but an easy way to store any Valentine’s Day cards that you may want to archive, without having them scattered throughout the house.

Each year on Valentine’s Day, boyfriends and girlfriends, husbands and wives try to out romance one another in the hopes of being crowned the most adorable sweetheart. Sure, you can get flowers, jewelry, chocolates or even a new handbag, but even with all the money in the world, you can’t compete with a cute dog!

With just the flash of some puppy eyes and maybe a cute whimper or two, dogs on Valentine’s Day will surely win over everybody’s heart! Here are 10 dogs that are winning at life on Valentine’s Day (in no particular order) …..

  1. @sebastianlovesluna

These just might be America’s sweethearts! Luna, a Pomeranian, and Sebastian, a Frenchie, are young and in love in the capital of Washington, D.C. Like any relationship, Sebastian and Luna have had their ups and downs over the years. If you follow them, which you should, you might have seen their video breakup and makeup series. We are happy to report that their love has withstood the test of time and they are currently engaged! Be sure to keep an eye out for Sebastian and Luna’s wedding later this spring.

These fluffy Pomeranians are a pack of 4 hailing from warm and sunny Florida. Anyone that has multiple dogs knows how hard it is to get all the dogs to sit still and look at the camera. Not only do these adorable Pomeranians nail that, but they do it in style and themed out to the max! Not only are these Poms stealing your heart, but they’re giving all the ladies blow out hair envy as well!

Tucker is a Morkie from Ontario, Canada, who not only wins over ladies hearts with his good looks and incredible baking skills, but he also has a heart of gold. Tucker is a registered therapy dog who works with young children. Tucker visits his local libraries where he sits with children who pick out books that they think Tucker will like and read them aloud to him. With such patience, kindness and love, we are sure Tucker has a line of ladies wanting to date him!

It’s been said that there’s nothing more handsome on a man than a smile. We are convinced that this saying might have been inspired by the joyous and infectious smile of Mr. Barclay! This futball loving rescue and his Mom often spend their weekends volunteering at the local shelter Mr. Barclay was rescued from. Mr. Barclay is proof that you don’t need materialistic items to win over a person’s heart…. All you need is love and a fabulous smile!

Besides having one of the most clever Instagram handles, their names are just as fun: Hershey, Oh Henry and Reese Pieces range in ages 1 through 9 and are loving the snowy weather in their hometown of Ontario, Canada. We are sad to report that most of the pack have Valentine’s Day dates, however, sweet Reese Pieces is still looking for love!
