 Some supplies we will need are: chipboard pieces, patterned paper scraps,  Love Mail digital collage, kraft knife, bone folder, silk and paper flowers, lace, buttons, stamps, rub ons, adhesive, glue, glitter, distress ink, scissors.
1- First I cut out 2 of the mail box images that previously printed from the digital file, you can use kraft knife or scissors.
 2- Adhere the images to a piece of chipboard
3-  Cut the chipboard following the shape of the mailbox as shown on photo.
 4- Do the same with the other image, you should end with something like this.

 5- Take one of the Mailbox pieces and cut a slot with the kraft knife (this step is optional)
 6- Cut 2 pieces of chipboard to make the sides of the mailbox, cover with patterned paper.
7-  Adhere on both sides of the mailbox.
 8-Adhere another piece of chipboard on the bottom as shown in photo, this will also help to hold on place the sides.
9-  Adhere the other part of the mailbox on top, press and wait until is dry.
 10- You have your mailbox ready and it should look like this.
 11-Now embellish with chipboard heart, glitter, button, flowers, ribbon, stamps etc...

 12- I also create a little envelope (these also come in the digital  file) I use clear stamps for the outside.  Then I just  put the envelope inside the mailbox.


This is how the mailbox looks like once you finish it, you can create as many as you want, and add even more embellishments, you can also put inside some candy, chocolate, or just a note.
