Target Mailboxes




These are altered mailboxes from Target. There is a learning curve I believe when it comes to these things! It was much harder than I thought it would be!! There is great tutorial here. I will say I find it much easier to just pull the flag off then to try and go around it. I have had no problems reattaching the flag. I find it easier to use a liquid glue (I use tombow aqua adhesive), it makes it easier to slide the paper a bit and get it straight. These two boxes will be given to my kids' teachers for Valentine's Day. I think we will fill them with cookies or chocolate. Yum! I kind of wish I had bought a few more mailboxes (I bought six, but they are so fun to do!)

Where did you see these in Target? I was just there today and I didn't see them (then again I wasn't really looking for them but I will be now!)

These are great!

Those are absolutely adorable! You really did a good job, makes me wish we had made it over to target! How long ago did you get them?

I saw them at Target a few days ago and thought they looked so cute! I wish I had read this post beforehand and bought some (not that I could make them look nearly as good as your do).
