All set for Valentine's Day

I am so excited to show this to you!  I saw these super cute Valentine mailboxes on and thought it would be perfect for my daughter to have one for her Valentine's party at school so I bought the file.  I have a feeling she'll be the envy of the class when she shows up with the most awesome Valentine holder around.  She chose the color and the type of mailbox she wanted and I did the rest.

The love caption and the cupid bear were from  The love caption was a free download and I received the Valentine bear kit as a freebie for buying other files.

I dobbed the bear's body with a hot pink ink so it was slightly darker than the rest of him.  His wings are embossed with a swirly pattern to fancy them up.

 A swirly heart gives the back of the mailbox have some flair.

The front of the mailbox is held closed by a ribbon that is attached to the sides of the box then tied in a bow in the front.  When untied the door opens and all the lovely Valentine cards can be placed inside.


I added three jewels to the "V" from the word "Love" for some extra bling.


Did you notice there was a little flag to indicate there was mail in the box?  Isn't that so adorable?  My daughter had the idea to put a brad on it so it can swing up and down/  Now why didn't I think of that?  Too late now though.

This mailbox serves two purposes.  I am entering this on Svg Cuts' Valentine's challenge.  The requirements are to use at least one file from their site.  I used a few and think this can be a top runner.  What do you think?
