I first wrote this post five years ago and am updating now with another great way to create a Valentine’s Dog House Box box using felt and Beacon’s Fabri-Tac glue. I was going to write a new post but gosh, this original has the most darling pictures of Jordan when she was in elementary school! The new versions is easy to create and uses just a few supplies and materials! Let’s do it. Let’s make a Puppy Love – Valentine’s Dog House Box with Kunin Felt!
You will need the following supplies.
- Kunin Premium Felt in 9 x 12 sheets. (4-Walnut for House Sides, 2-Red for Roof and Hearts, 1-Apple Green for Grass, 1-Black for Door and Extra Scraps for Details, Puppy, Etc.)
- Beacon Fabri-Tac Glue
- Trim for Roof if Desired (I used a trim from Expo International)
- Felt Puppy and Bones (Created with My Laura Kelly Pet Shop Puppy Die and Big Shot Machine from Sizzix), Google Eyes and Pom Pom Nose
Start by gluing your Walnut felt pieces together. Glue two together down one long side. Do the same for the other two.
When they are dry, cut a dog door out.
Lay the open pieces that are glued together on top of each other and glue down the left and right sides. Let dry.
To make the roof, glue the red felt to a folder. Add trim if desired to the edges. Let dry then cut out.
Put a thick line of glue around the bottom of the house. Place the house on a piece of green felt and hold steady to dry. Add grass details with green felt on sides.
Decorate the front door and the dog house with felt hearts, bones and a puppy!
The roof sits right on top of the dog house and can be removed easily to take Valentines out and put new ones in.
Ta Da! It’s a darling Puppy Love – Valentine’s Dog House Box!

This turned out so cute I wanted to share it! Last year, Jordan wanted to make a puppy dog house for her class Valentine’s Day party. So she did, with a little help from dear old Dad.
This is her material list: Photo Box from Michaels, Shipping Brown Paper, Scrapbook Paper for Valentines, Aleene’s Tacky Glue, Mod Podge, Sharpie Marker and a Laura Kelly Original Valentine (which I added as a free printable at the end of this post).
This is what she did: She covered the box with the lid off in brown shipping paper and cut out a black piece in the shape of the puppy door. Then she had her dad cut out the cardboard for the roof and attach it. (He cut slots and slid it in). She covered it in red paper. Then she cut a bunch of little hearts to put all over the house. She applied them with Mod Podge for Kids, giving it an overall shiny and beautiful finish.
She added a magnet to the puppy door and one to the back of a puppy cut from a Valentine so she could take the puppy on and off. She is so creative!
Have a Bow Wowerific Valentines Day!
