It's an ABC (Anything But a Card) Day over at Catch the Bug, and it's my turn to create something! :0) I always have a difficult time coming up with projects for ABC Day. I don't have any little ones at my house (my son is 20, and just does not appreciate good paper crafty stuff, ya' know?!). I never know what on earth to do with my goodies once I'm done with them. Hubby keeps every card I give him, and if I start giving him 3D paper objects.....well......I just have no idea where the man will pile them up! lol! Anyhow, it's always a tough day for me to create for my DT assignments, but I am giving it a go! (I have several ABC assignments this year, so I better get used to it, right?! lol!)
With Valentines Day just around the corner, I have seen so many of the cute little mailboxes on the web, and I wanted to give a try at making one.
I kept this one simple, using bold patterns to give interest to the body of the box. I used the
Bugaboo Stamps image called AKV Simple Stick - Stand. I have used her several times on my cards. I like her because she's simple, but still such a cutie! I used a heart-shaped brad for holding the flag (it does move up and down, which is so fun!). I added an adhesive tile to the box front as a sentiment.
