Hello Ladies! Who’s excited for Valentine’s Day? I am, and I have a fun decoration project to share with you today! Creating Valentine mailbox is one of our favorite Valentine crafting projects every year. I used to put the pretty bags on the shelves of our kids. The tiny boxes look so pretty and festive, and my kids could collect all their precious little notes & candies into them.
I started my project by selecting patterned papers from the gorgeous La La Love collection. To be honest, it was hard to choose because all the papers are beautiful and perfect for this project! I ended up by choosing Blush and Heart Beat papers. I printed out the template, that you can find below. I cut out the shapes and draw around them on patterned papers. I fussy cut out the bag and the handles from the patterned papers.
I used double sided tape to adhere the edges of the bag. Then, I punched holes into the handles and attach them to the top of the bag using brads. It’s super easy and fun!
When finished, I started to decorate the cute bags. I added ephemera pieces and cardstock stickers to the front and created a large paper bow to make them even more pretty.
Of course, I also created tiny surprises for my kids to put into their bags. I made fortune cookies, cards, envelopes for treats, heart banners and décor sticks using a paper straw and shaker stickers for them.
Here is the template of Valentine’s mailbag:

I can't wait to make more of these for our Valentine’s Day celebration! Thank you for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to give it a try.
