PDE & Paper Playtime Challenge #3

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start off your week with another great challenge from Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges
as well as Paper Playtime!

Pause Dream Enjoy (PDE) Ch#3 MAINLY RED
Paper Playtime (PPT) Ch#3 Use a Border Punch
Begins: Monday, Feb 4
Ends: Sunday, Feb 17
Winner announced in the WINNERS Page Tab at Pause Dream Enjoy and Paper Playtime.

Here is my project incorporating BOTH challenge themes:

I decided to make a fun little mailbox for my hubby filled with some Valentine candy.
I love getting these little metal mailboxes every year.
I find them at Target in the dollar spot. Since they are only $1 (at least they were last year), I try to stock up on them whenever I see them. 

For the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge--Mainly Red, I used as much red as I could. I found this patterned paper in my stash and loved the polka dots and thought it would be fun on my little mailbox. 
The "Kiss Me" was cut out of the Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge. I cut both the shadow and phrase at 2".It was a perfect fit for the front. 

For the Paper Playtime Challenge--Use a Border Punch, I used my Lace Heart Border punch and made a border for the middle of my mail box. 

Here is a picture of the front open so you can see all the candy:
As you can see, it holds quite a bit.
That will make my hubby very happy! lol!

Stacey I love your mailbox, it's gorgeous! We are getting Targets in Canada - finally - I am really hoping that they will have these mailboxes, so I can make some cute Valentines treats for the kids next year. TFS :)

Stacey, I love this Mailbox and bet the hubby will too. I am definitely going to have to get to Target to hopefully find them. I was going to try to make one out of craft foam....hmmm! Thanks for the inspiration.
Have a great week!
