Valentine’s Altered Mail Box and 3X3 Cards By Jen

Hi Everyone!

I am on a Valentine’s kick!  I would like to share an altered mailbox and a few 3X3 cards I created.
I found a mini metal mailbox at Target (the Dollar spot).  I decided to doll it up using paper from Bazzil’s Red Devil Multi Paper Pack.  I am in love with the Bazzil paper pack.  It’s so versatile and perfect for Valentine’s Day projects.
I adhered the paper to the mailbox using Mod Podge.  I embellished the box with box pleated trim, heart bling, a few tags and hearts that I cut out using paper from the Bazzil pack and some Martha Stewart “postage stamp” cut outs to go with the “mail” theme.

The 3X3 cards are really simple but fun. The base of the cards is white card stock. I layered my paper scraps from the Bazzil pack and added “With” and “Love” on the edge of the cards. The words were cut using Die-Versions - Express Edges - With Love die. The last touch was adding some fun sentiments and embellishments on each card (buttons, clothes pins, etc.).
