Verve Triple Play Contest
This is my entry for Verve's Project Parade Challenge. This time Julee's challenged us to a Triple Play contest in which you have to create a trio of things - three tags, a gift set with three items, etc.
This trio was a gift for my daughter's Student Teacher who wrapped up her teaching stint on Tuesday. Since she will be teaching at the primary level, I decorated a Target mailbox I've had in my stash for some time and turned it into "Santa's Mailbox". I figured it would be a lot of fun to put in her classroom (kids can write letters to Santa etc.). Here's a side view as it really doesn't show up in the picture.
I paired it with a matching coaster box (here's the link to the tutorial on SCS) full of Lindt chocolates and some Christmas cards. Unfortunately, I ran out of the matching DP for the cards - ugh - so had to go with this card instead and tossed matchy, matchy out the window. A great way to mess with my anal side and stretch me a bit LOL! I happy to report, she loved it.
Thanks for stopping in today, and sorry for the dark picture. I had to resort to my light box as I couldn't get all these items on my window ledge at the same time LOL!
