Celebrate this Valentine’s Day with OREO! Build the perfect Valentine’s Day exchange box with your family and friends. For a handmade touch add a sweet knit heart with this free pattern.
Valentine’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. For me, it’s not just about sweet mushy love, it’s a chance to tell all of your favorite people how much they mean to you. I make Valentine’s for my kids, for friends, as a family we do an annual heart yarn bomb, and I love putting together Valentine’s Day boxes for my kids to exchange.
This year I have a sweet treat for my son to exchange, all thanks to this OREO Valentine’s Day Exchange Kit! It’s never been easier to create fun exchange boxes while enjoying new Limited Edition Love, OREO Cookies.
Even the box is signed XOXO, OREO. I mean, you know you’re going to love what’s inside.
The bundled OREO Valentine’s Day kit includes cardstock to create boxes for exchange and fill with:
OREO Cookie Packs – OREO Original 2ct packs, individually packed OREO original cookies.
Milka OREO Chocolate Treat size bars – Delicious chocolate candy with vanilla crème and OREO biscuit. Format is a convenient pack for sharing or having as a small treat on hand.
The instructions include directions for assembling all of your Valentine’s Day boxes. Just a few folds and they are ready to be filled with OREO Cookie Packs and Milka OREO Chocolate Treat size bars.
The exchange boxes are ready to go! Now, if you’re me and like to add a little handmade something, there is room to drop in a little knit or crochet heart.
While you are filling your Valentine’s Day boxes you can also enjoy your Love, OREO Limited Edition Cookies. These cookies bring the spirit of the #1 selling Valentine’s Day candy with a sweet tart flavored cookie and pink crème to celebrate the season. Playful cookie embossments with share-worthy seasonal messaging plus peel-and-play stickers to personalize for your favorite valentine!
No need for a card, all of the boxes have a spot to write To and From names.
