How to Make

  1. Print and cut out the templates. Trace the main template onto a sheet of light pink patterned card and then cut it out.
  2. Trace the door templates onto a sheet of darker patterned card and cut it out.
  3. Fold the card where the fold lines are marked on the template.
  4. Stick the main piece of card to the two tabs either side of the darker card.
  5. Stick the tabs on the back door to the inside of the mailbox.
  6. Cut out the small strip, fold it along the fold line, and stick it to the front door. This will keep the door closed.
  7. Make the flag out of some other sheets of patterned paper and stick to the side of the mailbox.
  8. Cut out a heart from some light patterned paper and stick to the middle of the front door.

Top Tip

Try decorating the outside of the mailbox with lots of little heart shapes.
