More Mailboxes




These are the two I made for my kids. I tried to make the boy's a bit less girly. I think he will like it. I had a little accident with the flags. I had been popping them off because it was so much easier to cover the box. Well when I went to put them back on they wouldnt go. So I popped out the rivet and used a nice jewelled brad to hold the flag in place. Its a little loose but they still stand up fine and now they are prettier so I guess it was a happy accident. I am out of mailboxes so I guess its back to scrapbook pages.

52 week update... I have the pics, I have layout... but I am having printing issues to get the pic on the layout.... so technically I am done, I just need to print the pics and then post it...hopefully later this week.
