Valentine's Heart Attack Take 3

Clearly, I can't get enough of the sendable heart attacks. I sent a few heart attacks to people around town, but I needed to send one to my sister, Caitlin, so I tried a different version this year. Ideally there'd be enough hearts to swim in them. You know like Duck Tales how they swim in money?
Materials: box, scissors, hearts and lots of them. I even made some pop-up hearts for the sides.
These are great for loved ones living far away or even in town. Who doesn't love getting snail mail?

Check out last year's sendable heart attack box here and a heart attack for the door here.

So when you actually mail it you would cover the whole box in brown paper right? Or will the mail take it with the hearts on the outside?
Going to do this for my nephews. They need a special V Day this year.

@Lauren...how do you know caitlin?

Miss B. said...

@sarah B, I was just planning on sending it sans brown paper, but I'm sure it'd be safer with. I don't think it should pose a problem for the mail.

This is perfect for deployed military love. I have sent boxes with stuff on the outside and never had a problem.... just don't put by address area and I'd tape over the hearts with clear packing tape.
