Easy Valentine Gifts for Special People

I saw these and instantly knew they needed to be made for my son's teachers, though they can be tailored for any special folks in your life: mail person, co-worker, aunt, uncle, grandma, you name it.  Now, this is super easy and took me no time at all.  If you would like to create these cuties for your special Valentine, then read on...

The backside of the mail tin
Very roomy for goodies.  Both sides open.
 This is the main reason why I love my Tarjay, you know, the dollar section, because on occasion, one can find the perfect item and instantly have a really awesome and cheap without looking cheap gift.  Not that this needs a tute, I will include one anyway, so have fun making these babies up, after you run to your Tarjay...


Cutie Pie Mail boxes from the Dollar Section
Printer/Pencil or your vinyl cutter
Paint Pen
Filler - candy, stampers (also from the dollar section), gift card, whatever you want

  1. If you have a fancy vinyl cutter, you know what to do and skip to step 6.  If not, use a cute font and print your Teacher's name out.
  2. Scratch your pencil all over the back of the Teacher's name.
  3. Center the Teacher's name right side up and trace along the font.
  4. Use your paint pen to fill in the outline of the Teacher's name
  5. Color in a heart on the mail flag
  6. Fill to your heart's desire.
These are so cute!  Now to make three more for the rest of the teachers!

I really want to go back and get one several to make for a Family or individual family members mailbox!!  Wouldn't that be fun to have one that everyone in the family can write sweet letters for mom, dad, brothers to read as Valentine's Day approaches?  It's probably just the sugar high I am getting from the Valentine's Day chocolate (I have to quality check that it's good, right?) but maybe everyone would be a little sweeter to each other, if they thought they might get nice notes each day, with the flag up, of course!  Who would you make these for?

Take Care,
