Tags, Tins and Treats

The theme for this month's project parade at Verve Stamps is tags, tins and treats. I finally put to use a mailbox tin I purchased a few years ago. I altered it by decorating it with some My Mind's Eye patterned paper. The heart and sentiment image was a freebie previously offered from Verve called Regal Heart digi stamp set. I printed these onto cameo coral card stock. I cut out and adhered the heart images onto the mailbox flag and front cover. I also adhered a pearl rhinestone to the centers of each heart. For the two sentiment panels, I adhered some lace ribbon on the bottom edge and adhered one to the mailbox side and the other to the tag. I tied the tag to a bag of treats to go into the mailbox.

This is just darling! I have a bunch of those mailboxes, but I still haven't tried altering one. Love what you did with yours!
