Bigger Santa Mail Box Needed

Remember that little, tiny mailbox I made for
Bonnie to put her Christmas letters to Santa in?
Yeah, that was way too small.
She writes one thing on a piece of paper
(copied from a catalog or ad)
and that takes up a lot more room.
You guessed it.
A bigger Santa Mail Box is needed.
So I made her a much bigger one.
This one is about 8" tall, 
compared to the last one that was 3" tall.
That should do it.

Hey! Did you know that EVERYTHING in the
Silhouette store is 50% off through Dec 8?
I love a good sale like that.
If you like using the Silhouette fonts 
(like I did on this project)
this is the PERFECT time to grab some fonts
since they are normally around $3, and right
now they are 50% off just like everything else in the store.

I didn't do a lot of embellishing. I let the Christmas paper do all the work.

Sil ID# 61056 - SW Perfect Susan Font
I took out the blade in the Cameo and replaced it with a Red Sketch Pen.
This drew the tag and fonts. I then filled in the fonts by hand with the pen.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to in my craft room.
Have a fabulous day!

Well Janis, both are cute, but I can see why Bonnie needed a bigger one. And I am loving that bigger one! So cute, love the papers you used and I love the writing your did with the pen. Very cool indeed and I think this one will hold much more letters to Santa! Hugs, Brenda
