VALENTINE MAILBOX THE CUTTLEBUGSPOT
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to alter a Target mailbox. These are cute little mailboxes that you can buy at Target in the US for a dollar. Being from the UK we don't have them over here but I managed to buy an SVG file for SCAL at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.
I have to say that compared to the fabulous mailboxes my DT sisters came up with mine is rather plain! By the time I had glued mine together I was losing the will to live lol! that will teach me to plan ahead!
So my doors are embossed with the gorgeous Romantic Words CB folder and I cut a little red mirricard heart lock charm and snipped of the charm bit and key from Sweethearts Cricut Cart. The small red random hearts paper was a free download from Printable Heaven. The edges are decorated with red felt heart ribbon from Hobbycraft and the The diecut hearts and words are from the A2 Combo Love Language. Where the box opens I thought it would be sweet to have a little cupid to greet you so I cut him @2 1/2 " (Sweethearts cart) twice in black and twice in red mirricard and just used the heart which i layered on him to strengthen him. He is then adhered to some folded acetate so he stands freely at the entrance of the mailbox surrounded by yummy chocolate hearts. A few red gems to finish.
We would love to see your decorated boxes over at the Cuttlebugspot so why not join us in the challenge this week!
Have a great week everyone!
