Valentines Day Alligator Mailbox

All these years and we never made one of those cute boxes that hold all the kids Valentines they get a school, well no more! This year my son Caleb {10} and crafted one. We found this really cute idea on Pinterest here and then just modified it and made it our own. How cute is this?!
This is how we made ours:
We found the cardboard mailbox at Hobby Lobby and cut off the side flag
We bought Green paint at Hobby Lobby and painted the entire box, let dry
Then we super glued the mailbox in a half down position on the sides for the mouth.
Once that was done we cut out Teeth from White cardstock and glued them on the inside top and bottom.
Cut out circles for eyes and nose, painted in details.
Cut out two hearts and pasted to front and my son hand wrote out the poem in marker.
Super easy and cute!! Now he can collect Valentines in style.
