You’ve Got Mail! A Valentine’s Day DIY on a Budget

My love is on a budget.  Here’s a quick and inexpensive DIY I made for my sweetheart!  This DIY can be custom tailored for any significant other, best friend, or classmate!

  • miniature mailbox from Target ($1)
  • felt heart 3D stickers from Target ($1)
  • lace self-adhesive tape from Daiso ($1.50)
  • printed heart scrapbook paper ($0.50)
  • glue or tape
  • scissors

Miniature “Confidential” Envelope

Materials:

  • standard 4.5×11 in. commercial envelope
  • scissors
  • glue or tape
  • “confidential” document stamp (you can also just write this directly on the envelope in red sharpie)
  • white paper cut to size for message

Miniature Brown Parcels

Materials:

  • heavy card stock (I used scrap card stock I had leftover from other crafts)
  • brown grocery bag (I used a Trader Joe’s bag)

  • candy/cookies

I also made a few letters filled with some small notes and “overdue bills”.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
