Love Mailbox

This vintage mailbox is for my son's Valentine cards for his class.  He had to make/decorate a box to hold all of the Valentine cards and treats he will get and he chose to make this one.  He has good taste LOL!  The files for this box are from the For My Valentine set from SVG Cuts.
 He picked out the papers he wanted to use.  In his words, he really wanted to look like a Valentine!  I used black rumpled ribbon around the lid, a heart button and an embroidery floss bow.
 For the LOVE, I used silver Glitzy Glitter paper from DCWV and it cut perfectly in my Cameo!
We went a little crazy embellishing the front with a bottlecap, gems, brads, hearts, etc.
And here it is all filled with the treats he is handing out at school!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
