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!

Wedding Favors

I was digging some of my craft supplies the other day and found these little gems.  I made these tags to tie on chocolate favors for the guests at my friend’s wedding.  I think the guests enjoyed the photos more than the chocolate!

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN:

These are simple if you use a collage program like Shutterfly offers to resize and print multiple photos in a small size.  Using their engagement photos I found the perfect size for the tags (about 2-3 inches tall and rather narrow).  I used a hand punch to make the tags.  The THANKS tag is made from silver ink, swirl stamp, and blue ink and a THANKS stamp I found in the clear stamp $1 bin at Michael’s!  (Does anyone else find themselves spending $30 at the dollar bin?????!)
