This month’s Creative Circle Challenge is You’ve Got Mail – a darling mailbox perfect for Valentine’s Day. Here’s my first mailbox!
My card holding mailbox is made from Melon Mambo card stock and the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack. The lid and flap are done with stencil paste and the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask.
My cards that fit inside the mailbox are made with No Bones About It. The mailbox easily holds (3) 3 x 3 cards and (3) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards.
These cards were inspired by an “x-ray” card I saw on Splitcoast by Janet Holmes. I thought the idea was so cute!
The little 3 x 3’s fit through the opening under the flap.
Then I switched gears and made a mailbox without the card dividers inside and a window sheet over the opening to hold candy.
For this one, I used Sweet Lil’ Things Designer Series paper and the sentiment from the Occasions Mini set – Greatest Greetings. I punched hearts from every punch I could dig up in my craft room! They are glittered with Dazzling Details.
So now you can choose – cards or treats – or mix it up a bit and do both!
