Mailbox Treat Holder and A Candy Tote

We have a group of talented crafters ready to share their projects celebrating love and Valentine's Day! Along the way, you may find some blog candy! So sit back and enjoy hopping through our blogs!

My project for today is the adorable Mailbox from ProvoCraft's new digital images titled 3D Mailboxes. It was designed to be large enough for regular sized Valentines, but I resized smaller it to be a  treat holder.


The mailbox design also has a separate box inside it that slides out the bottom to retrieve those Valentines or treats! How clever!




But wait. . .there's more! You didn't think I would only have a project cut straight from a cart, did you? I also have a cute Treat Tote! I saw the one Andrea made and just loved it.


I didn't have any small bottles like Andrea used, so I used the plastic from the clamshells of my Cricut cartridges and made little acetate boxes. I then sized the holder to fit my three little containers.


The Treat Holder was designed in CricutCraftRoom using CraftRoom Basics for the holder and label, Sweethearts for the Cupid and MS Seasonal Cake Art for the band around the containers.

I used the little hearts that were cut out making the band as petals for little flowers on the top of each container. I hope you enjoyed looking at my two projects!

{I will be posting a tutorial showing how I made my version of the Treat Tote soon!}

Before you go, I have blog candy~a brand new copy of the retired Cricut Wedding Solutions cartridge! Leave a comment and next Saturday, Feb 4th, I'll use random.org to pick a winner!

Thanks again for stopping by. Your next stop is Dana.
