Valentine Mailbox

I had gotten this idea off of Kasey's blog, for Valentine mailboxes (at home). If you've never read her blog, take some time to do so . . . I enjoy reading her posts. Don't you just love their blog picture?! It's so typical of parents embarrassing their children . . . (giggling).

Our boys have decided that they want to keep them up all year, so I didn't want to get red mailboxes or decorate it just for Valentine's Day . . . so I just put our initials on the front. Since our kitchen is burgundy & white (I know . . . the cabinet is blue, I just haven't gotten around to painting it yet). Maybe decorating the mailboxes will follow, sometime (after the cabinet). With Valentine's Day, this Saturday, I wanted to get these up for the boys.

I cut the initials and the scalloped background with my Cricut. The scallops is from the Storybook cartridge (2.5") and the initials are from the Plantain cartridge (2"). I put them on a little buffet cabinet, in our kitchen.

As you can see, I left little "love notes" for all my fellas . . . this should be a fun week! Didn't they turn out cute?

I made Terry (hubby) his Valentine's Day card tonight, my boss asked me to make a Valentine's Day card for him (to give to his wife) + Theresa and Jenny are both celebrating their Valentine wedding anniversaries on Saturday too! I was a busy girl, since the boys went to bed! No (Theresa & Jenny)0, I'm not posting the picture until maybe Friday . . . give it some time to get to your homes! I don't want to spoil the surprise!

Happy Valentine's Day week! Thanks for stopping by the craft room!


  1. Sounds like you have been EXTREMELY busy sister!!!! It is always fun getting a SPECIAL made card from a friend or family member in the mail. I know it will be beautiful coming from the Fullbright's house! Thanks for not posting it sissy!!!

    Your mailboxes turned out really cute also!!!!

  2. Your mailboxes are really cute! I like Kasey's blog too.

  3. The mailboxes are adorable and a really cute idea. I imagine the boys will really like getting the little notes in there.
    Happy Valentines week to you as well.

  4. I love the mailbox decorating that's going on! I'm not sure my kids would appreciate them like all of you who still have small ones. What I think is really sweet, is that your fellas want to keep them up all year. How fun to put little love notes in them year round.
    Have a great day.

  5. Hey all,

    Wait until Maggie (Peggy) posts the card that she sent to Bruce and I for our Anniversary/Valentines Day. She out did herself and it is very pretty! She comes up with some pretty creations! She is obviously the creative one out of the both of us! That is for sure! Thanks again Maggie, you did a great job!
