DIY VALENTINE’S MAILBOXES WITH CRICUT

Unicorn Valentines Mailbox and VW bus Valentines Mailbox. From Target Dollar Spot. Personalized with Cricut.

When I found these little metal mailboxes at Target, I knew my kids would love picking out a design for them. My little girl ended up deciding on a unicorn, and my little boy wanted a Volkswagen bus mailbox. These were super fast to make and easy to personalize with my Cricut.

Here is a general idea of the materials you will need to make your own depending on how you want to personalize your mailbox.

I measured my little mailbox and then designed the bus shapes in Cricut Design space for the little VW bus mailbox. I love how easy the software is to use to create custom designs. I was able to make all the shapes I needed quickly and easily. I was worried that Design Space would be complicated to learn, but I was able to figure out the program really quickly and anything I might have questions about I usually can find answers to with a quick Google search. After I made my designs, I cut out red Cricut vinyl for the bottom, and white for the windows. I then used black cardstock for the wheels.

I was  little more stumped on what to do for the unicorn. I used some glittery card stock that I rolled into a cone for the horn. I quickly designed the eye lashes in Design Space using some basic shapes and the slice feature. I also made the ears with some cute little heart cut outs. I cut out black and pink cardstock on my Cricut machine. Then I cut up some tissue paper tassels and glued them along the top of the mailbox with hot glue to make a unicorn mane.

Didn’t they turn out darling? I’m excited to make some more Valentine’s Day crafts!
