Valentine Mail Boxes

These plain white mailboxes are from the dollar bins at Target...aren't they fun?  I bought one for the Mess Maker and one for the Noise Maker for Valentine's Day to put some treats in.  Now that I think about it, what kind of "treats" can a 9-month-old really have???  Hmmm...

I covered the body of the mailboxes with this cute paper from Three Bugs in a Rug.  I used my Cricut for everything else.  The frog, turtle and "xoxo" are from the Paisley cartridge, and the names are from Plantin Schoolbook.  I added some white swirls (hard to see in the photo) to the pink part of each animal with a white opaque pen.  To finish, I tied a red ribbon on the flag.

Thanks for looking!  :)

I think the 9 mo. old can have treats that Momma will actually have instead!! (like chocolate!!);-)

I wished that I got to the US more to shop or that I could find great deals like that here in Alberta. Anyways, you did a great job on them and I am sure your kids will be thrilled. As for treats for a nine month old? How about a small toy instead?
