I did a personal swap with a few friends outside of Craftster (I know, how dare I do such a thing!). I decided to make them mailboxes and fill them full of treats. Here are the mailboxes. They are made from metal mailboxes that I found at Joann's and candlestick holders I spray painted. The candy wrappers were printables I found on the web.

And special valentines for a few of my closest friends...hee hee....

These are great. What are the dimensions? They look small. Great work with the treats. I'm sure they loved them.

Thanks!

I'm not sure but they are fairly small. I would say about 9 inches in length and maybe about 3 or 4 inches in width. They could sit on your desk and not take up a ton of room.
