You’ve Got Mail

It’s hard to believe only 11 days until Christmas!   : )

With the Christmas season just around the corner I was thinking about all the Christmas cards that everyone sends and receives so I thought what a better way to display your cards then in your own mailbox.
After I made the mailbox I thought it was a little plain so I cut a piece of Red glitter paper and covered the mailbox and then added a second piece of striped paper using the Snowflake Edger die for a little more detail. 
Once I was happy with look of the mailbox it was too short so I built a simple 2 inch square box and a base to raise it up from the table.
Of course, I had to add flowers and since this was a Christmas mailbox I used Poinsettias made from the Holly Leaves die.
Here is a look:


and a few more pictures for you:



For this project I used the following dies:

B114 – Snowflake Edger
B157 – Country Girl
B162 – Lace Corner Deco B
B183 – Holly Leaves
B215 – Wreath Strip
B242 – Special Occasions
L-10 – Coved Rectangle Classic
XM-7 – Oval Classic

PS0719 – Hampton Art – Season’s Greetings
PS0514A – Hampton Art – Joy Peace Love Ornaments
