you've got mail

So have any of you seen the little tin mail boxes in the target dollar spot? so right now there is a little competition of inspiration going on at my bellaholics yahoo group. so i though I'm always up for a good challenge. so i went to buy some well they had 4 but only 2 were in good shape, so i bought the 2, so here is what I came up with for the 1st. I vered clear of valentines day references because it is so limiting plus I have a craft fair coming un in march so I want it to be something I can sell there, so I decided I want to do a stationery box with a mini pen some mini not cards and envelopes to match so i still have to create the filler but here is the mail box.

so I used SU Bella rose papers to compliment my bella stamp Mwahbella

So since I didnt want it to be specifically vday I stamped different sentiments all over the body of the mail box, and the little flag is marked for you

The front that I did not glue shut has our mwahbella and she's a savvy, sassy, sexy sistah

here is a full side view for you do you can see the paper layering the ribbon the flowers and brad etc as well as all the different sentiments all over and like i said i plan to make mini cards to match to place inside with a pen.
