LOTS OF LOVE VALENTINE MAILBOX | with Wanda

Hi everyone! It's time to decorate for Valentine's Day and get ready for all those love letters! I used the Lots of Love Collection today to create my sweet little Valentine Mailbox! I hope I get lots of mail! The mailbox form came from a big box craft store and I covered it with fabulous Doodlebug Paper, Stickers, Doilies and embellishments! What a fun project to make. It's on display in my craft room right now. 

The new Lots of Love Collection has so many things that I love: Red/Aqua/Pink palette, hearts, a mail theme, and flowers. The perfect Valentine collection, don't you think?! 

I used the 12x12 cardstock to cover the top of the mailbox. I used acrylic craft paint to paint the flag and also the inside of the front flap. 

Q

 I wanted a 3D decoration for the front/top of the mailbox.... So I die cut out six hearts and glued them together. I topped them off with a heart gem. I inked the edges with red distress inks. I glued it on the front. I glued a doily on top of the box and added a circle embellishment. For the front I used other embellishments from the Chit Chat and Odds & Ends packs of the Lots of Love Collection!

 Here's a photo of my plain mailbox before I started out! SO FUN.

That's it for my first project with Lots of Love! I hope I've inspired you to create some fun Valentine's D├ęcor! I'll see you soon and until then, happy crafting my friends!
