Valentine's Day Mailboxes

For the challenge at Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog ~we did the little Target mailboxes. This cute little mailboxes sell for $1 at the Target Dollar Section in the front of most stores. I couldn't find them in stock at our store, so Mandie sent me one. Finally our store called a few days later, and they had gotten them in again. They were very popular for Valentine's Day.

I love these papers! They are from K&Company. I picked them up around Christmas time at TJ Maxx for under $2 for the full paper pack. They are foiled and glittered and oh so pretty!

The little roses were another fun idea. The centers are two hershey kisses. I chose the cherry cordial ones. I wrapped them in pink saran wrap, and then attached them to a florists wire using floral tape. I took apart a silk rose, and added it to the wires to complete my roses. Another idea I had later was to punch rose petals from decorative papers, and then add them in layers to make the rose petals. Maybe next time!

I sure hope my Valentine's liked their mailboxes and roses.
