Altered Mailbox – Valentine’s Day

This altered mailbox is perfect for stuffing Valentine’s in, giving Valentine’s, giving cookies, using for a bridal shower, or wedding. I loved making it and it was just so much fun.

I’m happy to announce that it is also for sale in my shop — www.sugarbearcreations.etsy.com — if you would like to purchase or request a custom mailbox. Enjoy!

These boxes are great.  At 5×7 size these boxes can be covered using just a few pieces of paper.  Utilize pop dots when you create yours to give depth and dimension to your own altered mailbox!

Twelve Days of Tags – Day 2

I LOVE this tag so much that I made 15 of them, but I colored the hats and scarves differently each time.  For this tag you need: paper, tag template (or die cut), snowman stamp (michael’s for $1), ink, and gel pens in your favorite colors.  I inked the edges of these tags as well.  Add a ribbon or stamp a “to/from” to finish them.  These handmade paper tags will delight your gift recipients.  Make a bunch to give as a hostess gift in a festive tin or decorate box.
