Happy Valentine's Day!

Hey Everyone!! Happy Valentine's Day to you!! I hope you're all feelin the love today!

I thought I'd share these mailboxes I made this afternoon. I know mailboxes are everywhere and you've seen them a million times, but this is only my second time making them and was excited to do them anyway!


Remember how I said the other day I hadn't made Valentine's for my DH or kids yet? Well, I still haven't!! LOL!! But, I did these mailboxes for my kids so they could exchange cards with each other. So, since this was so last minute I went for SUPER SIMPLE!! I didn't even cover the front and back lids!! I saw Michelle's mailboxes today and got the idea from her to throw some ribbons on the flags, just what I needed to embellish easily and quickly! Sorry for the bad angle on the mailboxes, I realize I shoulda taken the picture from the other side so they look a little more interesting with the flags! I need to take a photography class to get some picture taking tips!! :D

Supplies: Papers by SU, all ribbon, except Sheer Creations polka dot, by SU, Stamps by A Muse, SU and Lockhart, Marvy Heart Punches, Memories Black ink, Colorbox Chalk inks, Copic markers.

Those are adorable! What a great idea! I think I'll have to do that next year when my girls are a little older!

These are perfect! I think they are darling with the heart punches on the fronts. No need for paper!!I know I still have a ton of mailboxes stashed away myself and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of them. I had good intentions of getting them all altered up for Valentine goodies, but I ended up doing the A Muse treat boxes instead! Happy be-lated Valentines Rhonda, I'm trying to catch up on all of my blog browsing....yikes :)
