Valentines Mini Mailbox


Mini Mailbox (I got mine in the dollar section at target)
2 pieces of contrasting scrapbooking paper (one needs to be a 12 x 12)
Ribbon
Stickers
Mod Podge
Scissors
"You've got mail" computer print out
Antiquing Ink
  • Cut a 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper into a 4" x 12" strip.
  • Antique the edges of the paper (if desired)
  • Measure the paper around the mailbox and lightly sketch onto you paper where the mailbox flag will be.
  • Cut a U-shape out of the paper

  • Take the ends off the mailbox.
  • Quickly mod podge the paper to the mailbox. (The paper will overlap just a little on the bottom)
  • Trace the mailbox end on the coordinating paper. Do this for both ends. Cut out the paper. Ink the edges.
  • Mod podge the paper to the mailbox ends.
  • Print "You've got mail" in your photo editing software or word program.
  • Glue or mod podge the "You've got mail" print onto the mailbox ends.

My daughter made little envelopes to fit inside the mini mailbox. She's been leaving us daily valentines! What a sweety!
