On our last trip to Target, Eve and I found marvelous metal mini mailboxes in the dollar spot. (Try saying that three times fast!) I had been reading for years how my fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators decorated these for all different occasions, so we picked up a couple. On our snow day last week we finally had the time to decorate them. Thanks to Emily Giovanni’s fantastic tutorial, it was super easy to cover them!
I started with a white mailbox and used the Raspberry Tart paper and the Love You Much stamp set:
Stamps: Love You Much
Ink: Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Raspberry Tart DSP, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Cameo Coral
Accessories: Rose Red 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Pretty in Pink 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Three Flower Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Rose Red Brad, Sticky Strip, Glue Dots, Mono Multi
Eve started with a red mailbox and used some retired Cherise paper and the Sock Monkey stamp set:
Stamps: Sock Monkey
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Cherise DSP, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Real Red 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Rose Red 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Pretty in Pink 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Watercolor Pencils, Sticky Strip, Mono Multi
We had fun putting them together. Might need to pick up a few more the next time we are at Target!
