31 Days of Christmas: Day 27 – Merry Mailbox

With all of this talk about Christmas cards I figured it would be fair to create some kind of holder for all of the awesome cards you are going to get.  This could also be used as a card holder until you send your own cards out.  Nothing like a multi-purpose solution.

Here is what you will need for the Merry Mailbox

  • 1 Small Priority Mail Flat Rate Box
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors
  • Card Stock
  • Markers

Here are the Easy Steps:

1.  Assemble the Priority Mail Box

3. Wrap the box

4.  On the top of the box cut a strip an inch from each side and then cut at an angle to the corner.  This makes sure that you can easily fold the flaps over

5.  Create a tag for the front of the box using your favorite punch, foam squares, and some markers

This project only takes about 20 minutes tops and can be used through the whole holiday season.

Hope you enjoyed tonight’s Project (Sorry the post is coming so late)

See you for just a couple more days of cards.  Can’t believe that the month is almost over already!!!!
