Ir’s a mini mail box!
Just like the old-fashioned kind we all had at the end of our driveways when I was a kid.
I loved getting the chance to open it up to see what goodies had arrived! Most times, the goodies – bills! – were for mom and dad, but it was always exciting to be the one to open up that lid!
This little box is exciting to both MAKE and GIVE!
I shared 4 different versions in my YouTube Live the other day.
This was the one I made to show you how.
I CASE’d the idea from Ronda Wade and changed up the size to be just a bit more treat-friendly!
What’s the first thing you notice? The super sweet professor-ish owl? Or the patterned paper?
The owl is from the FREE Sale-a-bration set Adorable Owls. When you place a $60 order with me right now until the end of February you can get this set for free!
Mini Stampin’ Blends Class!
I shared a mini Stampin’ Blends class in yesterday’s YouTube Live! Did you pick up some tips?
Those are the tools I used to get the super shading on our little birdie!
All the cute paper is from the Country Floral Lane. It’s super pretty with its mix of Sweet Sorbet, Balmy Blue and Petal Pink.
While we’re making boxes today, you can see here just how easy it is to make cute Valentine’s cards with it too!
OK, let’s make one!

The words included with the Adorable Owls set works equally well for Valentines too!
Aren’t all three of the tiny heart papers scrumptious from that package??
