Mini Valentine Mailboxes

I saw these cute little Valentine Mailboxes all over the place in Pinterest.  I had some nugget bars left, so of course I decided to make some.  You can make them as fancy or as plain as you like.

There were a lot of different sizes but I decided to use this video for the ones I made.  I made a few changes - the first one NOT using my glue gun!!  I don't have a low temperature one to begin with and didn't feel like burning my fingers!!  So I used my 1/2" score tape and it worked like a charm.

I had a smaller heart punch which I used, so I punched out two hearts to decorate the base of my mailboxes.

This is a great way to use up some of those scraps you have laying around.  My little mail slide measures about 1".  I had some micro glue dots in my stash which worked out great for the little pieces.  I had purchased them by mistake and thrown then in my drawn and what a great little tool they turned out to be.

I wish Valentine's Day was at least two more weeks away so I could make some more goodies.  It seems like I never start early enough making my projects, or I probably want to make too many of them!  LOL!!

UPDATE:  Jennifer gave out her Bear Hugs Valentine cards today and the kids loved them, especially playing with the spinning bears!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
