$ mailbox love...

So, I know these cute mailboxes were the 'it' thing maybe 4 years ago?? but this is the first year I bought any of them. I don't really know whose mailbox sent me over the edge, a youtube video, somebody's post on a message board, who knows. I kinda bought 12 of them. I don't even know 12 people that I would give these to. But what does that matter, right? I'm going to send a couple to family for Valentine's Day and then I saw some really cute ones decorated for Christmas. And, of course, I'm gonna have to make one of these for myself:)

I used a lot of Martha Stewart on this one, the paper, postage stamp sticker on the flag, felt hearts, and the trefoil heart border punch. I found it easier to cover it with a few smaller pieces of paper rather than wrapping one large piece around the mailbox. I used my cropadile to punch a hole in the lid to attach a ribbon pull with a brad. Cut through that metal like butter! The large white embossed heart on the flag is a Sizzix die that Stampin Up sells and the postage on the front lid are Quickutz dies. The 'love' is Quickutz Nutmeg mounted on a Spellbinders label diecut.

Gotta make this one a short post today. I have a few more of these to make using a few paper lines I've been dying to work with and I still need to finish up that mini-album from my last post. Hope you all are staying warm inside and using snow days to create!

    I have never seen these before, and we just came back from the states (we are from Canada) and I saw these at Target, and picked up a few. I guess we are both behind the 8 ball, lol.
