This is my favorite Message in a Bottle DIY. It's so pretty and vintage-inspired. And it looks easy to make it. The youtube video is from: CreativeKelly4rmCali

Wow that's nice, I've always wanted to try quilling

Even though I'm single, I'll try to make something for Valentine.

I bought my block of wood from Michael's but it's really small (2" block.. or is it 1 1/2"?) so I ended up getting a small bulb too, haha.

I'm gonna attempt to make it tomorrow , I'll share my results later =D

And you dont have to be taken to make V-day gifts guys :D

Make it for your best friend, sibling, family,close friends.. or.. ask someone to be your valentine for fun! ; )

Soo earlier in Jan I came across these cute Valentine mailboxes at Kohl's for half-off.

So I got one for my boyfriend and the other one is for my best friend : )

Please excuse the mess in the background.. its from all my arts & crafts and making stuff lol

(the ABC stickers on the right weren't a part of the mail box)

Left card is for the BF and the the right is for my friend ^ ^

My boyfriend's mailbox is filled a love letter,chocolates & a minigift (all unnpictured)

IMG_0080.jpg

For my best friend, If you open the card that says ABC's , it finishes with "..of best friends" inside.

so there's 26 individual letters in there.. lol. each explaining a characteristic of a best friend.

All are handmade cards (and envelopes!) ugh.. took so long...

Example of one of the cards:

I'm gonna attempt to make the Valentine lightbulb tomorrow.. ^ ^

I don't normally give out it gifts on vday cos it just happen to be my bday too but still wanted to give my "friend" something..

Mailbox Card. Got the idea from Martha Steward's site and thought it was super cute so I made my own version.

What's Valentine without chocolates? I filled this Bunny (cos that's what he calls me) bag with chocolate hearts and kisses.

He likes Christina Perri's Jar of Heart so I decided to fill a jar with my heart :P I made these love coupons which he can redeem even after valentine.

Something I stole from here sweatingbullets.gif The mailbox idea. I love it so much I decided to make my own (where I live they don't sell these shape) so I can put everything in it.

P/s: If anyone is interested in the mailbox tutorial, I'd be happy to share. I happen to snap pictures while making them.

Picked up these cute tin mailboxes from Target for $1 each. It's hard to see but I decorated it with Valentines Day ribbon from Michaels for about $1-$1.50 per roll (at 40% off each). Once I finish all the mailboxes I'll post better pictures. (:

I received a few PMs asking how to make the mailbox so here's a tutorial. Sorry for the tons of image. I didn't wanna make a new thread just for it so I hope it's ok to post here. They're pretty simple to make but it just might take a bit of time.

You can add ribbons, stickers, etc to make it prettier. I glued my flag on but you can use a paper fastener for a movable flag. Hope it helps :)
