Altered mail box : embossed

Just a quick post this morning. I altered this mail box for our challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. Lots of embossing on this one. I used my Fiskars heart plate to emboss the silver paper. I wanted to keep the metallic look of the box. I hope you enjoy. Have a great week. I will be posting another one tomorrow so make sure you come back to see that one.

If you are new to these boxes, they are sold at Target  for $1.00. Usually out by mid January, so when you see them get them before they are gone. The boxes make great for small gifts. I use them through out the year. Perfect for teacher gifts too.
