For those of you that might not know, I teach during the day. With Valentine's Day comes the need for valentine mailboxes. We all have used the traditional lunch sack or show box. But then I came across this...
SO CUTE RIGHT!!!!
Didn't The Crafting Chicks do a great job!!! I am in love!!!
OK...here are the directions. They are easy enough to make on a weekend, or a snowday for some of you guys getting hit hard with storms!
Ok as told by The Crafty Chicks....
All you need for to make these darling mailboxes are:
-A mini mailbox of some sort.
-Fun scrapbook paper. I wanted to use something that wasn’t really Valentiney so that I could use them all the time.
-A monogram or other supplies to add your childs name.
First, I traced and cut my paper to fit on my mailbox and each of the lids. The tricky part was cutting around the flag. I just kind- of measured where the flag would go and made a little notch. It doesn’t have to be perfect, the flag will cover some of it.
Next, I used Mod Podge to stick my paper onto my mailbox and used Mod Podge on the areas with paper as well. Last, I added a cute little digi- scrapped tag with my little ones beautiful faces and names on it. I Mod Podged that on too. I added some ribbon on one of the lids and I was done.
Easy...yes. Adorable...yes. Want to make it this weekend...yes!!!
Enjoy and check out the entire post!
