Little LOVE-ly Mailboxes

Yesterday I went to Tina's home and learned how to make these cute Valentine mailboxes.


Aren't they ADORABLE??



Here's the lovely Tina and her cutie-pie doggy, Eva. Check out Tina's blog, and all the wonderful things she makes here.


I just couldn't resist...I had to hold Eva too. Smile Eva!

Julia & Judy, the Stampin' Up girls taught us how to make these. Here's my finished products. Check out Julie's blog to see all the cute stuff she makes including these mailboxes.
I L.O.V.E. it!!!
And guess where you can get the undecorated, plain mailboxes? The dollar section at Target! Awesome!

I ran over there and got me a few more mailboxes to decorate. Look what else you can get in the dollar aisle...Valentine paper!

When I got home my daughter and I made more mailboxes.

My mom gave me this cupid punch years ago. I finally got to use it.

Pretty mailboxes all in a row.

Ready to be filled with surprises...
Thanks Tina, Julie and Judy for the inspiration!

These mailboxes were a cinch to make...just cover with scrapbook paper and embellish with ribbon, buttons, stamped images etc...Have fun!

How cute! I was just looking at those little mailboxes at Target wondering what I could do with them! I'm thinking I'll have to go back now and pick up a couple.

How wonderful that you and Tina got together for crafting. She is a sweetie. Those mailboxes are adorable and what a great price. Target really does have some great stuff in those $1 bins. Eva is just adorable! Glad to hear you had a great time. Blessings :) Tammy
