special delivery: valentine chair backers and mailboxes


Darling...Lovely....Sweet....

These are all words that describe these adorable Valentine Chair Backers. We fell in love with these last year and even bookmarked the tutorial. With Valentine's Day fast approaching we thought it was time to pull out the red felt and start working away on one, two or three of these bags (8 if you count up all our kids combined.)

Another fun idea would to make these in different colors so they can be used for other special occasions too. Imagine a bright birthday bag or maybe a pastel Easter bag. The possibilities are endless.


We also loved No Biggie's thrifted and restyled mini mailboxes (as seen on Make and Takes this week). I've got to get to the thrift store and find one (or four) of these! Absolutely adorable.

Thanks, Amy and Kami, for being such sweeties and sharing your talents with us. We know some very cute kids that will be really excited to get their Valentine's this year.

I love those chair backs...great idea! Target just had those little mail boxes in their dollar section!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Heck, we can adapt the chair backers and use them year round - that way, everyone in the family knows where to check to see if they got any mail! :)

So cute...reminds me of my elementary school years when we made valentine chair backs for our chairs and we all put one in each :)

I couldn't get the link to the chair backers to work. Any ideas on how to get the tutorial?

Hey thanks for featuring me, you cute gals!

Amy from our scoop is a friend of mine. I'll have to let her know that you linked to her as well.

Happy Heart Day!

So cute! It would look adorable attached to my friend's daughter's wheelchair (either on the side or the back)!
