Valentine's Mailboxes

I'm actually ahead of schedule this year with Valentine's cards! (well for part of them at least!) This week's challenge on the Hero Arts blog was to create something with a heart- which meant I was scrounging for hearts, because I discovered I didn't have as many hearts as I thought I did!

Anyway, a few weeks back I found these mailboxes at Target and many others out there in the stamping world had altered them for Valentine's Day- so this idea came together perfectly! Each one personalized
for each one of my nieces & nephew.

#1:

Supplies: Four Dolls; Tree, Bird & Messages (Hero Arts), Felt embellishments (La-di-dah)

#2:

Supplies: Four Dolls; Tree, Bird & Messages (Hero Arts), Felt embellishments (La-di-dah)

#3:

#4:


Supplies: Playful Animals; Tree, Bird & Messages (Hero Arts); Mindy's Zoo (Autumn Leaves); Felt embellishments (La-di-dah)

Now, of course these mailboxes couldn't be complete without a matching mini card inside! They are 3.25" squares:



And one last look of them all together!


Thanks for stopping by!
