Have you ever looked down the Dollar spot isle in Target? They have things that are cute but most likely would collect dust.. Except for this find! It’s a tin mailbox, with a lid that opens. I brought a few home with me and knew I could make’em my own. For a buck how could I go wrong? And I also found the valentine stamp you see used in the bottom photo @ the dollar spot, score! I had the cutest vintage cowboy designer paper on hand. I bought this a year ago and it fit perfect for this project. I guess sometimes it’s worth being a paper hoard. This is one of my first altered projects, and I am pretty satisfied with the way it turned out. Cute ha?
And behold, a new place to put all the lovely valentine’s cards rec’d. You can of course decorate this type of mail box for any occasion. I have a couple more on hand so who knows what type of box I will whip up & display. I guess you’ll just have to keep coming back and see!
To make this cute creation here is what I used:
Target Dollar Spot: Tin Mailbox & Happy V-day Stamp
Paper: Daisy Maybe baby collection “heart throb”
Spellbinders: oval and oval scallop
White ribbon dyed red with copic marker
Heart chipboard dyed with SU Real Red ink , Bella baubles and heart wax seal with gold wax. I made the little letter by hand and sprayed glimmer mist all over the lid. I stuck everything together by using my favorite sticky stuff, It’s called Score Tape by Sookwang.
Hope you all enjoyed my project today. I have to get started on the kids cards while they are at school. I’d be such a bad momma if I did not make something specially for them. Hope to see you tomorrow with another valentines day surprise. Signing off ~ Your Mother Crafter, Angela
