You've Got Mail!

Don't you just love getting mail? I sure do - especially when it's chocolate :) The project I am showing you tonight is an altered tin mailbox that I found at Target in the $1 bin (such a bargain!). I will be giving this as a Valentine to one of my dear friends.

To cover the mailbox, I used Basic Grey designer paper from the June Bug paper pad. I measured the mailbox, cut the paper to fit, and used my Xyron to adhere it. It didn't take me long to figure out what stamps I wanted to use for this project! I couldn't wait to add images from Gina K. Designs Special Delivery by Tami Mayberry. This set is one of my favorites and I just knew the postage theme would work perfectly with my mailbox. Memento Tuxedo Black and SU! Real Red inks were used for stamping. After adding on my images, I began to embellish using my Martha Stewart border punch, some red rhinestones, and a few different scraps of satin ribbon. I finished my project by adding the best part - the Hershey's Kisses of course!
