Decorated Mailboxes from Target Dollar Section! #Teachergift

These adorable mailboxes are popping up everywhere.  I just had to make a set of my own! They are so cute and only $1 each at Target in the dollar section! I plan on using them as teacher's Valentine's gifts... gonna fill them with some yummy chocolate!!

To make them I did measure - I know  I should- but I'm more of a wing-it crafter.  I just wrapped the paper around the mailbox and made a pencil line then cut.  Worked well because the cute ribbon helps cover the ends.  I used my Scotch ATG tape glider (HIGHLY recommend this product!) to stick the paper and ribbon on.   I put a sticker on the flag top and a flower on the bottom of the flag  using glue dots.  The rhinestone was added with glue dots too.  The paper, stickers and ribbon are from the target dollar section.  Flowers are primas and rhinestones I got at the craft store. 
Hope you enjoy!!
