Cricut Episode 167 - Valentine's Mailbox using Paper Dolls

Hi everyone!!

I hope you are having a fantastic day! I have gotten so much done, in terms of laundry! LOL!! Also, I was able to film a quick video tutorial. I hope you enjoy it! I have been making these mailboxes for 3 years now and have never filmed one episode on them. It was about time. Plus, Target had the cutest color pink this year. It actually is the same color as my walls in My Pink Loft!!!

For this project I also used Peachy Keen Stamps. I love working with these faces for the Paper Doll cartridges! They are super awesome!!






Supplies used:

*Peachy Keen Stamps PK-560 Dolly Dumplins Face Assortment Package

*Mini Monograms, Paper Doll Dress Up, & Simply Sweet Cricut cartridges

*Cardstock: Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up!; Raspberry Fizz from Papertrey Ink

*Chocolate Chip Classic Ink Pad from Stampin' Up!

*1/2 inch punch from Stampin' Up!

*Brown Grosgrain Ribbon from Papertrey Ink

SOOOO Cute! Now I just need to figure out what I'm gonna make them for. Hopefully I can find the mailboxes, because the Target here is so much more different than in the mainland. :-(

Thanks again Robyn!

I for a long time wanted to make one of these mailboxes but, I can't find them in my area anywhere. When I do find some I'm gonna get several. An amazing woman and a crafty woman you are, Robyn. TFS!

Oh Robyn I so want one of these but have never seen anything like this in the UK. You made this into such a fun gift.

Love Love Love altered stuff. I altered composition notebooks for christmas gifts, even made them for my niece for her teachers gifts. It is a great way to get rid of scrap paper and the notebooks are only $1.

I love the idea of these mailboxes, but don't always know what to do with them. Thanks for the idea. BTW, you're videos ALMOST feel like they're missing something without any outtakes :P

Super cute!!! LOVE EM!

amayo said...

Very cute- I decided to get the buckets instead of the mailboxes b/c then they already were decorated! How sad- but time gets short sometimes so I try to be realistic. They turned out very cute for you.

Bugeyes said...

cute...you just reminded me to get busy on mine's I have 3 to do, I also got the buckets for my 2 sons.

I apologize if I am not supposed to ask questions(I'm a little new to this). I've never ordered from peachy keen, but I have both paper doll catridges and was wondering which "face stamps" would be the most useful for me to order:) Thanks so much...and as always, great project. I have some mailboxes on hand and it got me fired up to use them again!

Very cute Robyn! I have made these for the last 2 years. The first one I made was for my daughter's 1st grade teacher. This year my son has her so I am not sure if she would want another??? She loves Hello Kitty so I might make one with some fun Hello Kitty stuff. Thanks for the video, I love to see the great ideas. I will have to check my Target see if they have the mailboxes. LisaMH

Julie said...

Those are so cute, Robyn. Thanks for the video, I just love all the wonderful ideas. I hope I can still find one so I can make this cute project and give it away to my special valentine!

Oh Robyn I just love your blog! Last week I saw these mailboxes at the dollar spot at Target and I bought on in each color for my three kids. I wasn't sure what to do with them but they were too cute to pass up! Thanks for the inspiration and idea!
