Valentine's Mailbox/Treat Box Blog Hop

Valentine's Day is just two weeks away and we wanted to see what kinds of mailboxes, boxes, and bags you make to give those special people in your lives. Join us for some amazing Valentine's inspiration in plenty of time for that special day and those special treats.

This hop has two hostesses today: Me, Jearise from Lorby's World of Hops and Tee  We both have blog candy so make sure you stop at each place to find out how to win.

Blog Candy from Lorby's World

 This is my prize package and if you take the cover off the heart box there is an extra treat inside...
Rhinestones and Pearls from Miram's Crafting Supplies.

Oooh you breath. How do I win these?
1. Become a follower of mine or let me know if you already are.
2. Tell me your favorite Valentine candy
3. Leave an email address where I can contact you if you win.

Also, two other crafty bloggers are offering blog candy so make sure to stop by Lynne from Her Craftiness and Jackie from Jack Rabbit Scrappin

Now on with the inspiration...

I kept changing my mine. First, I was going to use an SVG file I have to make a mailbox since the word mailbox is in the blog title. Then, I was going to Mod Podge a paper mache mailbox I bought this past week only to realize I wouldn't have enough time to get it done. That's when I found the latest release from The Cutting Cafe called Little Red Wagon Box. I fell in love...

The paper is from K & Company.
I used Ditto glimmer spray on the red sides to give it a gold glimmer and texture.
As you can see, the cute little boxes come out of the wagon and 
each little box can hold a special little treat like Hersey Kisses.
The sentiment is also part of the Little Red Wagon Box set as well the sentiments I used on the prizes. The soft pink jute comes from My Life in Arts and Crafts.

If you would like to join us for future hops, please visit Lorby's World of Hops. P.S. No previous blog hopping experience needed. :)
