For this year's Valentine's Day home decor, I decided to go with something small and meaningful - a love note pocket! It's a super cute and customizable mailbox for your love notes. Basically a handmade Valentine's Day card on steroids. :) And it lives on your fridge so it doesn't even take up extra room. And you can use up some of your scrap paper! So many wins on this one.
Supplies needed: 5x8 in paper, scrap paper, heart punch, adhesive tape runner, two small buttons, two jumbo craft sticks, one strong magnet
Step 2: Use the double-sided adhesive tape to adhere the craft sticks to the top edges of the pocket (on the printed side/outside of the pocket).
Step 4: Use the adhesive tape to adhere the buttons to the other craft stick. This is what will keep your pocket open and ready to accept love letters!
Step 5: I used an adhesive magnet strip because that's what I have on hand. It will temporarily suffice but these magnets are too weak for most projects! I highly recommend the strong, round magnets. You don't want your love notes sliding of the fridge. :)
Step 7: Decorate your pocket! Of course this is the best part, right? I made a mini tassel from embroidery floss, used a chipboard flag and a fabric triangle.
Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? We don't usually do gifts or anything but every year I make some kind of Valentine's decor. I just can't resist the hearts and cute crafty items!
