I already saw these wonderful mail boxes to adorn. In fact you can buy them but I was too anxious to start and I just make it on my own out of chipboard. I thik they are simply irresistable and you can myke them as perfect Christmas gifts. Who wouldn't be happy to receve on e of these?
The funny thing of this one is that I wanted to cover the vine branches with snow and I just took some white acrilyc and mixed in some UTEE and when dry it looks just like snow. Of course the addition of some blinks makes it more prescious and I see it like sun that is shining on cristal white snow.
I decided to hang some christmas balls on the branches and I used grungeboard because is rigid and resistant in time.
It's logical that a mail box can't be empty. I'm always excited when I find something in it (of cvourse not bills :-)). I created a mini using old envelopes.
Also for this mini I used a ribbon banner that I already talked about and as I said here is a tutorial how to do it. It's soooooo simple but has a great effect in my oppinion.
-a stripe of cardstock
Step 1: Apply the glue on the cardstock.
Step2: Apply the cardstock on the ribbon.
Step 3: Cut out the extremes of the banner.
Step 4: Now you can give your ribbon the shape you want.
I hope you liked it and use it in your projects. Have a nice weekend!!!!
