Mailbox Swap

I am addicted to doing swaps on the Cricut forum. Here is a altered mailbox for a swap. You had to alter a mailbox in your partners favorite colors and fill it with goodies. Here is picture of the mailbox with all the goodies I filled it with.

Front View

The "E" stands for her first name. I used a negative chipboard and painted it with a black magic marker.

Side View

Here is the side view. I painted the mailbox white. I used a very tacky double sided permanent tape on the paper to make it stick to the mail box. I stressed over how to get behind the flag part. I found instructions on youtube. All you do is use a small circle punch where the flag will be, then cut a slit and slide it under the flag. Very simple!! I just tied fibers around the base of the flag.

My Pink Cricut !!

Here is the newest addition to my scrapbook room. My new Pink Cricut!!! I have wanted one since they came out. I finally caught it on sale at Michael's. I love it!!

Leash keeper

Here is something I made to hang my dogs leash and coat on. I made it using a chipboard letter I purchased at Michaels. Applied paper, name, and flower with a decoupage medium. I nailed the little knobs on. I used Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.
