Adorable Mail Box Gift Boxes

Hi everyone, I recently made these cute Mail Boxes and they’ve been so well received by so many of you. Check out our group Mixed Up Crafters if you want to see all the wonderful versions being shared!

These will make wonderful table favours, gifts for your neighbors, left on their door step or just sat under the tree with a special gift inside!

There is plenty of space inside to hold your gift.

If you fill the stand with sand, it will be able to hold a heavier gift.
