Valentine Mailboxes

Happy February! We made it through January!

February is the month of love and I made my two Valentines their own mailboxes. My hubby & son will get little treats and notes from me throughout the month in their mailboxes. When the flag is up, they need to check it. They were very excited to be presented with these this morning!

The cute little silver mailboxes are $1 find from Target. I covered them in some gorgeous patterned paper from BoBunny. All is takes is a 4x12 piece to cover it all the way around.

I used Maya Road chipboard letters for their initials on the front and also covered them in the BoBunny paper. I made a little flag cover with the paper and used my SU! hearts punch, from the Love You Much Bundle, to punch out a small heart and stamp a message on it. I tied ribbons on the flag post, although I'm sure they boys don't care about ribbons. I think it adds a nice touch! :)

*Don't forget the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration starts today! For every $50 you spend you get to pick out something free from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!

Have fun watching the Super Bowl tonight! Go Steelers!!!!

Tiffany - I absolutely LOVE this idea.. I've seen these mailboxes altered before. But I've never seen such a good use for them.

Your little guy (and husband) must feel so appreciated.

I may have to CASE this idea quickly for my own little guy.

Your brother-in-law loves chocolate too. Perhaps you could make him one.
Another "male" box.
