Valentine mailbox




Mail box for Isabella!

This cute craft project was a joy to make for my darling grand daughter Isabella, who just turned 3 recently.

I found the little mailbox at Target's $ section. The heart pattern paper I had left over from last year, and I added some glitter on the hearts. SU! heart punch came in handy to add hearts on the mailbox. Red and pink Prima flowers with a Marvy circle punch on the backside. Red ric rac from Wal Mart and a clear rhinestone embellies from my stash. The front of the box is a heart foam stamp cut out with a $ bin Michael's stamp sentiment (Be mine)! Ink-Real Red SU!

I had never used Martha Stewart's glue before, and I am very impressed with the way it stuck to the metal box as well as to the paper. It comes in a sponge type pen applicator and is easy to control the release of glue.

I will fill this mailbox with mini Valentine's for Isabella to enjoy and share and send it off to Canada to my little Valentine!

Thanks for stopping by and for you support! Deb
