I can bet, like me, you find the Target Dollar Spot irresistible. Each time I go to Target, I find myself in that section browsing the most recently stocked items. I found this cute little galvanized mailbox, along with some ribbon and heart-shaped suckers, and brought them home knowing I would find something to do with them for Valentine’s Day. They’ve been sitting on my kitchen counter for a couple of weeks now, so when I woke up this morning and started to make breakfast they caught my eye, and I figured it was time to do something with them.
I took the ribbon and wrapped it around the mailbox. I secured it with a dab of hot glue. That means I can easily remove it if I want to use the mailbox for something else in the future. Something tells me I will be doing just that, because it’s adorable! I took some red and white scraps of felt and cut out an envelope and heart. To make it simple I hot glued them together as well. Since I had the suckers I placed them inside as the gift, but you could put any number of things inside the mailbox. Such a fun way to wrap a gift, don’t you think?
I had this little jar left over from Christmas that I purchased from Michael’s for under $3 on sale. I thought it would be cute to wrap a band of gold metallic Washi Tape around the bottom for a bit of a glam effect. I arranged the suckers into a bouquet and secured them with another band of Washi tape. I just love the outcome! It’s simple, cute as can be, and can be used far after Valentine’s Day. What do you think?
These could be fun gifts for teachers, grandparents, well anyone really! I hope you like them, and maybe use the idea for yourself! Thanks for stopping by!
