Valentine Mail Boxes

1:57:00 PM


I did a double duty for Valentines day! It was also super close to one of my best friends birthday (YOUNGIN'!) she was turning 30 and I wanted to do something more than just buy her a gift card or random present somewhere! So I made her a Mail Box that was filled with 30 things I love about Michelle! You can do the same thing for Valentines day for your husband or children! I plan on filling the kids mailboxes with treats and wrapping it the same as I did Michelle's!


I found the metal mail box at Target in the $1 section! I regret not buying more! I found the heart stamp at Michael's in the $1 stamp bin and I also bought my Martha Stewart brand paints at Michael's as it says can be used on any surface! I first squirted a bit of paint onto my rubber stamp.


Using the brush or a dobber I covered the stamp (I wanted mine to be more "bubble" so it had dimension to it!) I then placed the stamp carefully down on the spot I wanted. Lifted and then with my brush added more paint to fill in the heart! I then let them sit to dry. It did take 2 coats!


Could that be any easier??!!



For Michelle's gift I typed out on the computer my 30 things that I love about her. From her attributes, to how she makes me laugh etc. I then folded each one and placed inside the mailbox! Make sure to lift the red flag when they have "mail"!


I then wrapped with twine and sealed the twine to the back with washi tape and ribbon tape! I LOVE how they turned out! And it was super fun to make!
