Target Mailboxes

I'm sure most of you have seen these, but I still feel the need to start with the following warning: this project is addictive: easy, cheap, and cute!

Last year, my friend Casii turned me on to the Valentine's fun at the dollar spot at Target. We made cute frames, and I bought a mailbox but never made anything with it. This year, I searched for "Target mailbox" on Splitcoast and saw lots of adorable ideas - so, of course, I had to play.

My co-workers and I are going to make 30 of these tomorrow morning as thank-you gifts for the presenters at our upcoming in-service. I'll post some of those later this week, but here are 3 I made as samples. I had fun with Stickles (who doesn't love glitter?), but I may go back and add some ribbon to the flags to dress them up a bit.

PS - I'm going with "FLOURISH" as my word of the year. Did you pick yours yet? Let me know on my previous post - I'd love to see it!

Hi - they are really cute! Reminds me a bit of a real mailbox I bought in Walmart about 9 years ago when I was over there - I also bought stickers and was going to craft it up and put it in the garden to remind me of our holiday! My DH was not happy having to pack a mailbox in the suitcase (along with everything else!) Needless to say, it's in the loft - untouched. I think your version would be more managable!

Great word choice. Love those mailboxes, don't think our mailmen would know what to do with them though.
