You've Got Valentines

When Ashleigh was a freshmen in college I would send her care packages for every holiday that included something fun for her roommates too. In the beginning it was just to get her through the freshman year and help her make friends, now it has become somewhat of a tradition. The froomies (friends+roomies=froomies) have come to expect my holiday boxes.


Since December was so crazy for me and they headed home for winter break I didn't get a Christmas package to them, and was told they missed it (although I did bring them all back something from my cruise).


So for Valentines day I decided to kill two birds with one stone. When Shannon sent the challenge to alter the little metal mailboxes from Target's dollar spot I decided they would be perfect froomie Valentine presents. Here is a pic of all of the mailboxes together.

I used various valentine papers from my stash and at least one Stamping Bella image on each so they would qualify for the challenge.










I love how they came out. Each one is filled with Valentine candy. I hope they like them.
