Easy Light Up Valentine Heart

7 Materials
10 Minutes
This project is easy and inexpensive. Great for Valentine's day, gift, or night light. Make it with your friends for Galentine's Day! ("Gal"-entine's Day is a day where girlfriends get together and celebrate Valentine's Day Friendship.)

I found these boxes at Dollar Tree.

You will also need the following materials:
Battery operated LED lights
A photo
Tissue paper or tissue paper squares
A pencil
Glue or hot glue gun
I used a battery light strand I found at Dollar Tree, poked holes through the box with a screwdriver where I wanted them to go and left the battery pack inside.  I also took a family photo and placed it in the window of the box.
Take small squares of tissue paper (you can buy them pre-cut or make your own), wrap around the end of a pencil.
Add a dab of regular glue or hot glue onto the tissue paper.
Press the hot glued tissue paper onto your surface that you want to coat.
Continue adding the tissue paper around the lights and photo until completely covered.
Turn the lights on and your done!
