Verve Project Parade Triple Play Part II


I had so much fun making the mailbox for my daughter's student teacher I had to make a few more.  I have several friends who are elementary school teachers so these will definitely come in handy :)   They are also going to be an entry in Verve's Triple Play Project Parade

I kept the design the same for all of them, just switched up the DPs and colours on each one.  Had a ball making them and wish I had a few more so I could dole them out to a few more teachers or moms with small kids.

However, the fun ended when I had to try to take a picture of all three of them at once. As you can see, I ended up using the light box again as my windowsill could not accommodate three of them at one time without a major structural engineering feat in order to get a photo platform LOL.  I tried my best to show you as much of the mailboxes as I could, and thought I had mastered it, but just noticed the one on the right wasn't angled properly so it got cut off a bit - ugh. It has the same design as the other two on the side, just used different colours. The finishing tough was a snowflake added to both sides of each mailbox "flag" :)

Thanks for coming by today :)  Have a fabulous Sunday!

these are too adorable, Marisa :) I love how they have the side wooden bar that goes up too. I have my project done as well, although I don't think I can win as I've already been a Guest Designer...oh well, I still had fun and I can give the project away as a gift!! LOL Thanks for the encouragement about Stacey's curtain call...I hope it wasn't just because no one else wanted to take December, being such a busy month :) enjoy your Sunday :)

Wow, Marisa, these are awesome! They would make a great project also for Valentine's day for your kids to keep all of their valentines in! These look like they took a lot of time, so well crafted and super coordinated! Hmm, I'll have to ponder these over my toothbrush tomorrow...I'll keep you posted...BTW, I definitely think you should be the next Verve guest designer!
