This Among Us Valentine Box might be just what your child wants to create for their own box this year! See the step-by-step instructions below!

Do you have a young fan of the popular, multi-player video game “Among Us” like I do?

The game that made a surge toward the end of 2020 inspired my youngest son’s school Valentine’s box. His crafting tools of choice usually involve cardboard boxes and hot glue, and this self-designed Imposter is no different.

How to Make an “Among Us” Valentine Box

  1. First, cut your large Styrofoam cylinder in half.
  2. Using the medium sized cardboard box, cut a square that can wrap around ¾ of the diameter of the cylinder half.
  3. To create the back and top of the Imposter, use your hot glue gun to attach one edge of the box around the flat edge of the half cylinder. DIY box
  4. Make two legs by cutting two smaller squares, rolling them to touch, and glue. **An easier option would be using two toilet paper rolls.**
  5. Cut three slits in the middle, bottom back of the body and fold tabs inward. This allows for the legs to be attached.
  6. Glue the tabs together, then glue the legs to the bottom of the base created by the tabs.cardboard structure - Splendry
