LOVE LETTERS

These little mailboxes have been around for years, but I have never decorated one. It was a little harder than I thought it would be. Found this mailbox at Michaels, it was a Christmas mailbox, but changed it to hold love letters for Valentine's Day, this was a challenge at Scrappy Frog.

Used X's and O's paper from my stash, added ribbon around the middle. It was necessary to take off the arm, used brads to put it back on. The background for the letters was embossed using a Big Shot. The folder is from Provo Craft. Also used ribbon around the edge of the lid, also covered the front with a different heart paper.

The sentiment on the arm was stamped with red ink, and then colored in with colored pencils, the scalloped circles were made with Spellbinder die cuts. The flower on the corner of the sentiment is sheer ribbon, that are loops that are glued together and then added a heart stud in the center.


Maybe if I leave this out in the family room, Billy, will leave me a love note, for Valentine's Day, that would be a wonderful surprise.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a crafty one.
