You've got mail


These little mailboxes were very popular last year during Valentine's. But of course, I missed the wagon and when I finally decided I wanted them they were all out. I wasn't going to let that happen again. So as soon as I got word they had been spotted I ran to Target. The have pink, red and white, but I only got white ones~ all they had of course. I used some left over SU paper from last year and some of their chip board. Then personalized it with a clear alphabet stamp from A Muse. These are so easy and fun to make.
ETA: When you decorate these mailboxes, you have to carefully pop off the flag before adding the paper. They are easy to take off, but if you aren't careful you will bend the mailbox; making it difficult to put the flag on again.

I saw yours and had to go to Target. Now I'm just staring at them and afraid to try! Yours is Too cute!

very cute! Oh - and if you use the 1/2 in circle punch and then cut a slit into the punched hole, you can slip the paper right on around the flag and not take it off!
