Hi Friends!! I have some fun winter and January projects coming your way – but first I wanted to post a fun idea to get you thinking about Valentine’s Day! Crazy huh? Sometimes I feel like all we do is jump from Holiday to Holiday – but it’s so fun at the same time! This year for Valentine’s Day (and really all of February) I thought it would be fun to make little love note mailboxes for our family to share love notes and treats with each other. Just some fun little reminders of how much we really do love and care for each other!
I found this little mailbox die from Lifestyles new line and knew it was perfect for the idea I had roaming around in my head. My kids are too little for school valentine boxes so we won’t be making any of those but these are perfect for our family. It will be so fun to open them every time the little flag is up and see what is inside!
To make them I used:
I also used the small envelope for a “love note!”
I made one for each of us – well the ones that will know what is going on since Zachary is too young – and put our initial on the front so we know whose is whose. I am loving the contrast of the white with the pink and red! The mailboxes and only about 4 inches tall and wide so they are minis but perfect for fun little dollar store treasures and simple treats for the kids and love notes (and chocolate) for the hubs and I.
