Baby Ellie's Mailbox


My husband's sister had a little baby girl two weeks ago last Tuesday: Elizabeth Clare McCullough. She is super sweet and snuggly (even though she got tired of being passed around and I had to give her back to her Momma after awhile :o) ) Since these little mailboxes are all the rage right now I decided to do a little keepsake box for her: the tag says "Its the little things that matter".... which is true right? I covered it in Baja Breeze and then used EK Success borders (some of which are layered with chocolate chip cardstock) to make the "stripes". The E is chipboard covered in Tiara Stickles. The sentiment on the flag is A Muse and the flower sticker is EK success, but I'm not sure which line (I've been saving it awhile!) Lastly I lined the lids with taffeta brown ribbon and viola! Mailbox!
