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

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Tis' the Season!  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

Gorgeous little mailbox Joann, I would love to make one of these as well for Christmastime, would love to know how you made it, so we all (esp me) could make one.
A little tutorial on it would be fabulous.
