Here is a free Valentine download for you if you dare (lots of cutting, folding, gluing….)
- Pillow Box Alligator– blank so you can add your own embellishments like stickers, heart hole punches, glitter and more!
- Pillow Box Alligator with pink hearts
- Inside of mouth
First download and print out an alligator and inside of mouth
Cut out pieces
Lightly score lines on pillow box and gently fold
Put glue on side flap of pillow box and fold together, leaving the ends open. Allow to dry a few minutes before folding in the ends of the box.
Score about 1/2 inch from the end of the upper mouth piece so it can open and close (see final picture). Fold in ends on box and begin gluing on upper and lower mouth and the tail.Use lots of glue stick! Use a rubber band to secure pieces while they are drying.
Fold edge of each leg and glue to sides of box
Add some googly eyes and fill box with candy
How can I download the pattern to my iPad? I just love it?
Can you please e-mail me the svg file for the “I’d Snap At The Chance To Be Your Valentine. Can’t get the link to work. It’s adorable! Thank you.
Thank you for featuring me. One image with a link to my site is fine and appreciated.
Hi! I love this!
I’m doing a round-up of Valentine’s Printables and was wondering if I could use an image from your post for both the post and a combined marketing (Pinterest, etc) image?
I already linked you, but wanted permission before using an image!
Thanks either way.
Thank you so much for the wonderful alligator pattern! Our grandchildren live out west and we, the grandparents, live in the south. My husband is always teasing them about alligators, so it was really fun to make this valentine for our 4 grandchildren ages 1-4. Your photos and instructions were great and I so appreciate you sharing them online.
Just wanted to say that my four year old daughter chose these this year for her classmates! She is beyond excited and I think they will be fun to make! Thank you for providing the option to create with or without the hearts! I can’t wait to post them once they are made!!
Thank you for an awesome template! I enjoyed making these alligators 😀
We put candy in ours.
These are slightly tedious to make but very cute. To address the comment above, these are not mean to hold candy, simply used as a card.
