You've got mail!

One of my favorite things about elementary school was making mailboxes for Valentine's Day! I remember loving giving and receiving Valentine's from my classmates. So we made some... I'm hoping this will encourage us in reading, writing and positive encouragement.

So we started out with (what else?) some empty Girl Scout Cookie boxes. Covered them with plain wrapping paper then cut a slit on top with an X-acto knife.

we were just going to use stickers to decorate but I couldn't find the sticker so we brought out the paint....

and then... i found the stickers. 

because of the paint the stickers didn't stick really well so I added a layer of mod-podge which helped!
