I saw a cute decorative mailbox at a craft store and guess what I thought? I thought, “I can make that!!” It sure looked like I could recreate the mailbox’s pieces using simple shapes in cardstock. And making it open up for Valentine mail would be fun! I got to work to make a Valentine Mailbox pattern and am IN LOVE with the result that I’m sharing with you. I’ll show you the basic steps to make a Valentine mailbox craft and share some personalization ideas in this tutorial!
