The Batmobile Valentine Box: The COMPLETED Creative Masterpiece

With a bit of black spray paint, and some Batman symbols, available from google images, the cardboard Nike box Batmobile

has been thoroughly transformed.

Hard to believe this is the same set of cardboard pieces.


For the wheels, we but out Batman symbols, and measured them in Word to make sure they would cover the circles with no overlap.

For the windows, the saran wrap was difficult to maneuver,



so he simply cut these little arch shapes. To close the flap on the hood, so that friends can insert larger Valentines, we glued a paper clip to the underside,

and glued a magnet to the other side,

so that the hood will stay closed.

This all started, when I heard the words, I think we should make a Bat Mobile for my Valentine’s Box this year.

Fear immobilized me.

How would we create that shape for the car? The hood, and the dash and the front window, and the coupe in the back? With great trepidation, I started to imagine how we would do this. A sponge? How would we make a wedge? Styrofoam. How would we get that angle to be perfect? How would it all come together? Steve from Minecraft? Finding a square box would prove challenging.

I imagined us trying, failing, tears, frustration. Hopeless… and he’d end up carrying a plastic grocery bag to school for a Valentine box.

I left the kitchen. An hour later, I walked back into this chaotic mess:

Every piece of cardboard had been confiscated and used a template, or a base.

Older brothers were called into cut wings with exact o knives.

The glue gun was hot, and the package of sticks was almost empty.

Construction paper was scattered everywhere.

But there, standing in the midst of the chaos, the origami master made this:


The design? All his.


I never thought to build the “wedge” for the bat mobile’s hood and windshield out of cardboard, and actually construct something that would be sturdy enough to hold.

He realizes, and remembers, that sometimes Valentines don’t fit through the slot. So, he created a little trap door to lift it up. He needed my help to keep it shut.

I had a plan.

What about attaching a small paper clip to one side, and a magnet to the other.

He’s like my help in spray painting it black.

What about the wheels? Should we cover the center with aluminum foil — like hub caps?

And the windows? “How about saran wrap,” I say. He considers it. Not sure yet.

“I’ve got a plan for the wheels, he says.

Perfect he says.

We’ll be spray painting it soon.
