Santa’s Mailbox. I am nearing the end of an era in my house. For 16 Christmas seasons, I have dutifully helped my boys write and mail letters to Santa. Each year they want to go to the mall to drop off their lists in person…this year, I got smart. (It took me long enough) I made a magical mailbox just for letters to Santa.
To make one for your own little ones, you will need:
Open up Cricut Design Space and send the mailbox project to cut. You will need 8 sheets of 12″x12″ cardstock for the mailbox. Assemble the mailbox using the instructions (found here) This will take a little bit to assemble, but I think it’s worth it. Once you have it assembled, you can leave it as is, or you can add a label to the front. I used Cricut Gold Adhesive Foil on the bottom, and Cricut Printable Sticker Paper on top. The gold Cricut pen wrote all the text on the sticker paper, I filled in the empty space and the little reindeer myself. For a little dimension, I added a tiny red glitter reindeer with mounting tape over the gold one.
I printed out several letters to Santa for my youngest and some friends to fill out and put in Santa’s Mailbox. I love having the mailbox at the house, I empty it after my boys go to bed and I know what they are asking Santa for…they love seeing the mail is gone in the morning.
I hope I have inspired you to make your holiday a little more magic!
