We're working with two of my favorite things today --- paper crafts --- AND chocolate! Today we're making cute little Valentine Mailboxes -- delivering CHOCOLATE! yay! How cute are these??!
They are too cute -- and go together quickly. They are also great for using up scrap papers. And - they don't have to be just for Valentine's day - switch out the decorative paper and the sky is the limit --- party favors, lunch box surprises, showers - a little hello for office mates desks --- so many uses.
Below is a list of supplies I used - with links to some similar things on Amazon if you need the suggestions. You'll also find all of the measurements. To watch the complete instructional video -- drop by my YouTube page!
Don't forget to pop into the Facebook group and drop some pics! I'd love to see what your working on!!
