Valentines Day Projects

I have also done a couple of those super cute Target mailboxes. For those who may not be familiar with them, they are small metal mailboxes that come for the $1 bargain bins at Target. Once altered, these make adorable gifts. I only have pics of one of them so far, but still have a couple more to make. (And the pics of the first one just didn’t come out right. Will have to try that again later.) To do this mailbox, I used a 12X12 sheet of printed paper (also from the target bargain bin) that I cut into a 4″ wide strip. The 4×12 fits this mailbox perfectly. To get around the flag, I used a 1/4″ round punch and made a slit with the scissors to get it around the flag. For the pink pieces on the flag, I used the Cuttlebug die to get the stamp shape, then ran it through again with the “Love” embossing folder. The word “Sweetie” on the side is cut from the Love Struck mini cartridge at, I think, 2 inches. I also got the heart on the front from Love Struck, but it was originally supposed to have been a heart with a banner across it. This was the shadow function of the cut. The regular cut kept giving me a hard time getting it off the mat, so I gave up and just cut the banner ends off the shadow cut and used it as a regular heart. The name was written on with Marvy Wet Embossing markers and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. These are small, but I managed to get more stuff in there than I expected. Inside it has 2 of the travel size bottles from Bath and Body Works, a small box of Sweetheart candies, and a small lip gloss from Michael’s. Hope you like it!Target Mailbox
