Mini Mailbox - Shhhhh, These are a Surprise
Hope you all can keep a secret. A very special lady in our lives gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on the 8th of January. She has a wonderful son too. I wanted to do something special for Mia and Ben. I got busy last night and created these little mailboxes for them. My plan is to get them into the mail tomorrow so they have them by Friday. Now if you know them, please don't share the surprise .... OK. I just couldn't wait to share the surprises with the rest of you.
Mia's mailbox has been decorated with Sending Love Speciality Paper (item #117153), Pretty in Pink ribbon (item #109032), and Rose Red ribbon (item #111366). The ribbons are 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. Heart was punch with our Full Heart Punch (item #113693) using Pretty in Pink cardstock (item #100459) and highlighted with our Uniball Signo Gel Pen (item #105021)
Ben's mailbox was decorated using Tall Tails Designer Series Paper (item #115678), Old Olive Ribbon (item #111368) which is 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon. Heart was punch with our Full Heart Punch (item #113693) using Brilliant Blue cardstock (item #100721) and highlighted with our Uniball Signo Gel Pen (item #105021)
Inside of Mia's mailbox there are 3 pairs of snuggly warm socks in pink and white.
And inside Ben's mailbox there are bags of M&Ms. Yummm, he might have to share with his Mom & Dad.
These little mailboxes are the perfect size for small gifts and can be decorated for any occasion.
Here's the link to the tutorial on how to make them.
