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
Barbara Helen says
It is unclear from the directions if either of the ‘ends’ is to be glued shut….if not, won’t the candy come falling out both ends?

Thanks so much for sharing, I made these for my grandson’s second grade class. I used pinking shears to cut the saying, to make it look like sharp teeth. All the children loved their Valentine’s and my grandson was so proud as he helped make them.
I cannot download the attachment cause I have a iMac BS
Does not work, and I do not really like it.

I just loved the alligator valentine-I made them for church! I’m sure they will be a hit.Thank you for free downloads.
I love these! I’ll start making them tonight for my first graders. Thanks for sharing!
So cute! My dd’s school mascot is the Gator. And wouldn’t you know it my computer just died so no way to print these guys out. Still very adorable!
This is adorable! Thanks so much. I can’t wait to try it.
I LOVE this project! In fact, I love it so much that I included it in my roundup of great handmade Valentine cards! Check it out here: http://www.favecraftsblog.com/link-love-make-your-own-valentines-day-card/
This little alligator is so, so cute! Thanks for the template! I’ll be featuring it today.
This is so cute. I wanted to make something adorable for my first kindergarten class. I have a wild animal theme this year, and these go well without being over the top. I am putting crunch bars inside. 🙂 I am glad I started a month early. Great idea! Thanks!
