Valentine's Mini Mailbox Treat Holder

Hi Stampers! Today, I wanted to share with you these super cute Valentine's Mini Mailboxes that I made for our grandchildren. We have three grands under the age of 2 1/2 but wanted to make them something special from Mimi and Pops!!! I have three Dove milk chocolate treats inside (yummy).

I stamped "love you" on the inside of the flap for an added surprise, when the mailbox is opened. 

This stamp is from the Forever Lovely stamp set. A gorgeous stamp set with the matching Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies! This bundle is a keeper!

The mailbox flag was made from the Classic Label Punch. I stamped "My Love" from the Forever Lovely stamp set and die cut it from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies. The box inside is made with Thick Whisper White cardstock, for added stability. 

I used the Hardwood background stamp on Whisper White cardstock and stamped with different colors. Sponged a little ink over the stamping. I tried using some Designer Series Paper but depending on the patterns, it would be upside down on one side if it wasn't an overall pattern. My inspiration came from Amanda Frankel's YouTube video. Thanks Amanda for the inspiration!

These are so fun to make, I plan on making a bunch in different colors! I hope you are inspired to make a few yourself. These would be really sweet RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) treats for folks to brighten their day. Thanks for stopping by!
