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,
