Good Morning everyone. Today I have a cute Valentine's Day project to share with you. These cute little mailboxes can be found at Target and they are only $1.00!! That's a pretty reasonable price to pay for something that starts out plain looking like this -
I covered my mailbox with Basic Grey paper and added tan ribbon along the ends of the mailbox.
Now when I need to decorate the mailbox, I pulled out my JustRite Stamps (of course!!). I had already decided that I was going to make this mailbox for Emily to take to her class Valentine's Day party to put her Valentine's in. So my first step was to personalize it for her.
I pulled out my Curlz Font ensemble and loaded my rectangular stamper with the 95 point font to spell out Emily's name. Then I cut & matted it onto tan cardstock. To dress up the flag pole, I added a pink Prima flower with some Kaiser rhinestones applied to it.
For the top of the flagpole, I used the designer center from the Tiny Words set (by JustRite). I thought this center was perfect for the flag because I was "sending hugs" to Emily. I diecut the image as well as the mat using the Spellbinders Curved Rectangles Nestabilities.
I think my little mailbox is adorable!! What do you think?? I would love to hear some comments from you. Comments let me know that people are actually reading my blog. I would also love to hear some suggestions of what you might like to see on my blog. I am always willing to try something new.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. Please be sure to stop in tomorrow for more sneak peaks at some new JustRite Stampers releases.
