Well I had purchased this adorable wooden mailbox a long time at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts and finally decided to do something with it. I thought the image "Kitty Note" would be perfect for my mail box, so that's the one I chose to use. Here is my completed mail box with a matching card: And here is what the mail box looked like before:
I covered most of the mail box with designer paper. I painted only a small portion with a Robin's Egg Blue that was too difficult to cover with paper. I hand cut some design elements of the paper out and using Mod Podge, glued them to the painted portion of the box. I added some ribbon for embellishment.
Here is a view of the back and side of the box. The Kitty image was printed in the full size it came in and colored with Copic Markers. I then cut it out it out and glued it to the box with Mod Podge.
Here is a close up of the kitty image showing a card peeking out inside.
And this is a close up of the side view.
And finally a close up of the card I made.
I chose the Robin's Egg Blue color and matching designer paper because I plan on using this as a storage box in my future craft room, and those will be the colors of that room.
