Valentine's Day Mailbox

Here's a Valentine's mailbox I made for my daughter to use at her school Valentine exchange. I used the Lovestruck cartridge for this project.

I used the fit to page option on a 12x12 piece of cardstock. The image cut at 11.5". After assembled, the mailbox is 3" tall and 4.75" long. Just big enough to fit Valentine cards! I used a solid pink piece of cardstock to cut the mailbox and flag, then after I assembled the mailbox, I cut pieces of patterned paper to fit all the sides of the mailbox. I attached the flag with a brad so the flag will raise and lower. Finally, I stamped my daughter's name on a heart shaped die cut and adhered it to the mailbox door.

I'm linking up at Exploring Cricut's Be My Valentine challenge. I hope you have enjoyed this project!

Have a great crafting day!
