Valentine Craft Day (Mailbox & Love Notes)...

Today we worked on a couple Valentine crafts. First project on the list...Hillary Ashton's Valentine mailbox for school. Of course, she is excited about the party (& mailbox), but she is also very excited about the fact that there will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for the best mailboxes. She REALLY wants to win...which is kinda unusual for her...I guess she takes her crafting serious :o)

Cereal box...soon to be an award winning Valentine mailbox :o) Keep your fingers crossed...ha!

We saw a super cute monster mailbox last year on my friend blog that became our inspiration (thanks Jamie!!). She loved using our new, super cool (40% off) heart punch...
