Thank you so much for this wonderful invite...such a honor! I had a lot of fun and I'm so pleased that I could be a part of your very talented DT's showcase!
For this challenge I decided to take a Priority mailing box, that I received in the mail, and pretty it up to send it back out as a gift to my sister at Christmas time.
I took the box, painted it with a sand color paint then when that was dry, I put on a thin coat of modeling paste, so that the scene would be pressed into it, so that when I mailed it nothing would be torn off the package. I then glazed over the entire scene with mod podge to seal everything. (please note, I left the back and left/right sides in it's original form for mailing purposes. The front and top/bottom side is painted).
Since I'm sending the box, I needed to put something in it so I created a mail holder. I thought that this would be a pretty way to store received mail until you're ready to go through it. Once again, I took another priority box, that I had received in the mail, opened it up and then cut it into the shape and length that could hold mail. Then I added some paint, sewed it, decorated it, put a button on the front for a closure, and added ribbon to hang it. Inside is something special...I took a birthday card that she sent to me, with a kitty on it, cut it and sewed it to the holder...she will love this because she's such a cat lover and it's a form of sharing an image that we both love!
