Mailbox Tutorial

Hello all of you Cuttlebuggers out there!!

My name is LORi BOYd
I'm a Stampin' Demonstrator and member of Cuttlebug Design Team.
I am here this afternoon to bring you a quick and simple tutorial for an
Altered Tin Mailbox

Mailbox can be purchased at Target for $1

Supplies Used:
Mini Tin Mailbox - Target $1
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper - Rose Red
Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss
Misc. Ribbon including SU! 1/4" grosgrain - Old Olive & Pretty In Pink
Stampin' Up! New Stamp Set - "Love you Much"
Stampin' Up! New heart to Heart Punch
Stampin' Up! 1 1/4" Circle Punch
Stampin Up! 1 3/8" Circle Punch
Stampin' Up! Scallop Circle Punch
SU! Old Olive Button, SU! Inks, Markers and Snail Adhesive

Here are measurements for each segment of Paper/Card Stock you will need

Trace your mailbox lid onto the back side of the Designer paper, then cut it out.

After you have cut out all the pieces, you are ready to alter your mailbox. I used the SU! Snail adhesive and it works great!

You will adhere the piece of 4"x 9" paper over the top half of the mailbox.
Beginning, just above the mailbox flag.

Next, take the 2 pieces of 2"x 4" card stock and run through Cuttlebug to add embossing, then adhere just below the paper you have already placed on the mailbox.

Now, adhere the paper to the ends (lid) of the mailbox.
You now have your base, and are ready to embellish, embellish, embellish.
