If any of the above would be highly appreciated by your Valentine on Valentine's Day, then you've found the right Instructable!
This year for Valentine's Day, I was at a loss for what to get my boyfriend for the big V-Day. So, I went hunting for something he likes. I ended up stumbling across these Star Wars box chocolates from Target. But I thought those were totally lame. I mean they were heart shaped boxes with a bedazzled Darth Vader on them... They had plush Vader chocolates, and a little Vader tin, but everything was really overpriced and really cheaply made. (I apologize in advance if you bought one of those for your Valentine or you received one. But I thought they were kind of lame. They had similar ones at Wal-Mart and I was not impressed with those either. ) Anyway, I had also already bought him a Star Wars Tervis Tumbler. If anyone doesn't know what those are, they are these really awesome cups that keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold, and have an awesome warranty on them if they break. They are kind of expensive, but they are a more awesome version of the kind anyone can find at Wal-Mart. So, I needed something to put that in, and that's when I came up with a Sarlacc Valentine's Box!
Step 1: Research, research, research!
The problem with Google Images for "Sarlacc" is that you will come up with A LOT of fan art, and fan art isn't always accurate...
(Yes, I know the finished product was also not accurate, but I would rather recreate the original than recreate someone else's interpretation of the original.)
The Sarlacc first appeared in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. While you are doing research, you can enjoy a movie night pre-Valentine's Day with your Star Wars Sweetie.
Wikipedia is a wealth of information on the Sarlacc.
I decided to go with the tentacle/beak version, cause that seems much more interesting, and the little mouth makes it kind of cute.
