A Crafty Kind of Day {Part 1}

So, I have had the materials to begin a craft project for Kira's preschool classmates for Valentine's day, and I have been dying to begin crafting.  After Kira's gymnastics class and before heading to a birthday party, I decided to begin my craft project.

What I decided to do is use the red and pink tin mailboxes from Target (dollar section; adorable; they come in white, too) to create a more personalized Valentine's note collector for each of the children.

All of my supplies came from the Dollar General store or the dollar section from Target.  Today, I used foam letters to put each child's name on the mailboxes.

I also used shiny Valentine's stickers to decorate each end of the mailbox.  I have more plans to come for these special treats (so stay tuned), but here is what I have so far:

I cannot wait to finish them!

Oh, and since I had 700+ foam letters and numbers, I decided to make the birthday gift for our party this afternoon more special:


  1. Everything came out so cute!! I even love how you photographed the mailboxes in the grass! I just love how detail oriented you are :)

  2. These mailboxes are adorable!!1 The kids will LOVE them!!!
