Special Delivery...

These are Target Dollar Spot mailboxes that I bought about a year ago and have been stashing away waiting for something to use them for. I finally decided that they would be valentine's for my two little girls. I will fill them with sweet treats and a small toy item each. The supply list for these will be hard for me, as I have resolved to start using things I have had for ages, and this project appears to be my kickoff to using up those old things.

Paper is Miss Elizabeth's called Be Mine from Dollar Tree 2 years ago.
Thin ribbon is SU Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain
Organdy is SU, retired, Pretty in Pink
Chipboard letters are from Michael's, years ago, brand unknown.
Flowers are a couple years old, I do not know brand.
Frosted Lace Stickles.

---I cut a small slit in the side to the flag and used SU 1/2" circle punch for the flag.

Sorry for now knowing where all the products are from, I must get my stash under control!

I am finally working on V-day, on to cards, and gift sets for it, and I will for once, be ahead of the game!


  1. Those are great! I love them!

  2. Those are so cute. I love the way you used the flowers on the flags.

  3. These are so cute. I see cute things like this but never can think of how I want to use them. Your's are adorable. Your girls are sure to love them.

  4. I love these too! What great valentine items you're coming up with for your loved ones :) That's great that you bought these a year ago- altering mailboxes is so popular now, you were ahead of the times!
