Altering Mailboxes

Here's my take on altering those cute little mailboxes. There's a total of 7 mailboxes and the possibilities are endless! 13 pictures in all. Thank you for looking!

This picture shows the front views...

And here are the back views...

The next 3 pictures show the mailbox I made for my little girl, Valerie. She has a red and green jungle theme in her bedroom and this fits in perfectly! The paper is from the new Animal Cracker DCWV stack. We have a love of palm trees down here in Florida and love them!

This is the front view and the "V" is from the Storybook cricut cart...coated in doodlebug sugar!

I inked both the front and back side to give it that distressed look.

Okay, these next 3 pictures are the 2 mailboxes I made for my nieces with their initials on the front. They are filled with Valentine Day sweets for them!
Here's the side view as Oscar does final inspection on them. :)
And here's a back view...again, I used Storybook cricut cart for the initials as well as the pretty heart on the back.
Okay, the next 2 pictures are "Mickey Mouse" themed ones and were made for my nephew (brother to the girls above) and for my cousin's grandson who will be turning 2 soon. The Mickey Font cricut cart was used for the monograms.
Here's a close up of the flag pole adorned in Mickey Mouse embellishments.
This pink and green mailbox was made for Valerie's grandparents and will be filled with lottery scratch off tickets...hope they win big!
And these last 2 pictures are the mailbox I made for my other niece who will be celebrating her first birthday soon. Her nursery is in a pretty pink decor. Again, Storybook was used for the "K" - I think that cart is my all time favorite one!
This is the back view and I cut the envelopes from Doodlecharms and wrote S.W.A.K. (sealed with a kiss) on them. Thank you for looking!
