Nothing takes us back to the days of puppy love more than Valentine's Day. We remember our grade school years, waiting endlessly for candy grams and valentines to be distributed in our doily-covered desk mailboxes. Of course, as we grew up, Valentine's Day changed and with it new memories and traditions came to fruition. But one activity has never grown old: Receiving valentines from loved ones, family, and friends. We want to make sure this tradition is long-lasting, so we pulled together 8 DIY Valentine's Day mailboxes to spread the love this February. Check them out right now:
