Elisabeth Bell Monthly Challenge

The Elisabeth Bell monthly challenge is to alter an item.  I chose to alter an old mailbox I had lying around from target a few Valentine's ago.  I used Martha Stewart Valentine papers to cover the mailbox.  I then used red grosgrain ribbon to cover the seams.  The image is from Whiff of Joy.  I covered the mail flag with lots of ribbon scraps I had lying around.  Finally I added some flowers, pearls and a love charm.  It was quite easy to make, not as easy to photograph!!!  The pink end pops off, so I can fill the box with chocolates or other Valentine candy!  I hope you can play along:)
