Love Letter Mailbox

***Simply Living has moved!  Come check us out at for new updates ***

With an early release from school today, and an already announced snow day tomorrow...I think it's safe to say New England has been brutally stomped with snow once again! I haven't worked a full work week since the new year started...hello winter. This time I'm fully embracing the snow day, Margarita in hand, and a fun project to work on tomorrow. Yes please!

Today's project is super simple, but pretty darn cute. The other day when I was perusing Target's $spot I found some pretty cute little mailboxes. Very small, but what better use than for some love letters? Even though Valentine's Day isn't the only time you should be showing love and affection, I love all the ideas it inspires! I certainly love on B every day, but will take every hallmark opportunity to focus on that hunky man.

All the materials that I needed - $1 mailbox from Target, Letter Stickers, and Decorative Stickers.
Next I wrote Love Letter on once side with the sparkly letter stickers.  I wanted it to say "Love Letters" but alas, I ran out of space.
Then on the end I wrote XOXO, gotta love those hugs and kisses.
On the other side I added our initials.  I positioned it in the corner so you could see it with the flag both up and down:
 Next I added the embellishment stickers to each side:
 I will most likely coat the whole thing in a thin layer of Mod Podge just to make sure all the stickers stay in place long term.

Here is what the whole thing looks like with my homemade Valentine inside:
B gets one of those homemade personalized Valentines every day up until the 14th.  I'll post the tutorial later this week, so stay tuned!

Love is in the air!
