Valentine Mailbox


I picked up several of these little mailboxes a few weeks ago at Target Dollar Spot. The kids and I will be decorating some red ones on Valentines Day and I decorated one for my Secret Sister. The rest we decorated last night at my Stamp Club meeting. This is my example. Everyone got to choose the pattern the wanted from the Loves Me Designer Series Paper so they all liked a little different. We also made these cute little cards to fit inside.
The flower card uses the slit punch to keep it closed. The card base measures 8 1/2 x 3 . I punched one end with the slit punch and then folded it over so that the other end could slip under the slit. No envelope for this one, but it would be cute to slip inside someones pocket, backpack or lunch bag. I also used 2 way glue to adhere glitter to the centers.
The sweet card was very simple. It measures 3x3. I colored the stamp with markers to get two shades on the same stamp and then punched it out with my circle punch.

Your mailbox is ideal for a pink bedroom and/or Valentne gift. That makes it useful all year long. Cute!
