Scrappy Frogs Mini Mailbox Challenge.

I love making these mini mailboxes for Valentine's gifts. I usually make them for my daughter's teachers and fill them with candy. So, we decided to have a mini mailbox challenge on Scrappy Frogs to see how everyone else decorates their mailboxes. I made this one for my daughter, she loves Pigs.
I started with this cute little sentiment I found- hogs and kisses. I welded the letters together with my gypsy and used a pig head from Animal Kingdom as the O in hogs. I cut 2 more of the pig heads to cover the flag of the mailbox. I added googly eyes of course to give them a little more character.
One end of the mailbox has conversation hearts cut from the new valentine's mini cartridge- Lovestruck, the other end has another clever pig sentiment- Happy Valenswine's Day. I cut it out with a label nestabilitie and added some glitter hearts.

Now the other side has my favorite creation- Cupig!!!! Isn't he cute? I used the pig from My Community and added wings to him (the wings are from Lovestruck) and gave him an arrow from gypsy wanderings. I had a little bow for him too, but it was too wide to all fit on the mailbox. I am going to fill this up with some Valentine's goodies and give it to my little Piggy for Valentine's Day!
