Check out our other Valentines Day Crafts.

Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade will show you, step by step, how to make this.







 

Materials Needed

– recycled box
– beautifully patterned wrapping paper
– white and red paper
– scissors
– pen
– glue
– glitter glue
– cutter






 

Step 1

Take the recycled box and draw a “window” on it (a rectangle in the middle) … like this.







Draw another “window” on top. Be careful to not draw too close to the edge.







Cut the “windows” out. Take care not to cut yourself.







It will look like this.







And the “window” on top.







 


Step 2

Put wrapping paper under the the lid with the “window” and draw its outline.







Cut it out, like this.







Apply a layer of glue on the back of it…







… and stick it in place.







Step 3

Glue wrapping paper on the other sides of the box too.

For the top do the same as in step 2.







Apply a layer of glue inside the box and cover it with white paper (you can cover only the back, because only this part is visible through windows).







Like this.







 

Step 4

Now, let’s decorate it.  Draw a simple owl outline and 2 wings on white paper.







Draw another one on red paper.







Cut them out.







Now let’s prepare a tree branch to stand on.







You can use your pen to give it some color, like this.







Cut  it out and glue it on a lower corner of the front window.







 

Step 5

Now you have to assemble owls. We’ll start with the white one. First, color its eyes.







Then, put glue on the upper side of one red wing…







… and stick it in place. Do the same with the other one.







Make sparkling points on its body with glitter glue…







… like this.







What’s missing? Cut a small triangle from the red paper to make its beak.







Do the same with the other owl. Aren’t they cute?!







 

Step 7

Apply glue where you want to place the owl.







I put them on the left side of the window. To keep them on sturdy, cover a little of the lid with one of them, like this.







The other one will stay near the first, holding hands (or wings). They look so cute together.







 

Step 8

Draw one circle on white paper and one on red paper (slightly bigger).







Cut them out.







On the white one write “Happy Valentines Day”.







Apply glue on the opposite corner of the window…







… and stick the red circle there.







Over it place the white one.







Your mailbox is now ready to be used.







There you go…. your Owl Mailbox for Valentines Day is ready.  Now, you are all set to collect all your Valentines Day Cards.  Enjoy!!
