To make the mailboxes: Trace the fronts of your mini-mailboxes ($3.95; centurynovelty.com) onto sheets of decorative paper, then cut out and use ModPodge to attach to mailbox fronts. While ModPodge is drying, paint wooden candlesticks in desired colors and set aside to dry. Once mailboxes are dry, cut heart shapes out of red felt and use hot glue to attach to fronts of mailboxes, on top of decorative paper. Use alphabet stamps to stamp names on white cardstock, cut cardstock in small banner shapes, and glue each name on top of felt hearts. Add additional trim to front of each mailbox, if desired, then use a glue gun to attach mailboxes to candlesticks. Make your mailboxes about a week ahead of time so your family can begin to fill them with valentines.
To make the Valentines: Use a miniature envelope as a template to create your own out of patterned papers. Cut papers in complementary patterns into heart shapes to use as valentines.
