Sending you my love...
Send someone you love a special treat this Valentine’s Day. Decorate a mini-mailbox and fill with love notes, cards, photos and treats. I love a touch of whimsy the papers by Nikki Sivils adds to this mailbox. It’s a fun way to send your Valentine greetings this year.

Remove the mailbox flag; it can be re-attached later using a Zutter Rivet. Cover the mailbox with Nikki Sivils U R My Favorite pattern papers. I applied all of the papers using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. I embellished the mailbox with flowers with Bits of Bling, frog cut out designs from Nikki Sivils pattern papers and applied to the outside using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. I cut an unfinished wood candlestick for the mailbox base. Paint with white acrylic paint. Attach the wood base to the mailbox using Helmar Super Strength PVA Wood Glue.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day!
