Whoooos Your Valentine/You've Got Mail!

I had some time to play with my Cricut this afternoon
and knowing I will be needing
20-30 little somethings
for little someones
I began thumbing through the
Close to My Heart
Artiste Cricut Cartridge booklet
and decided that
little mailboxes
would by just the thing
to hold the Hershey Kisses I got!
Here's what I came up with...

Just big enough to hold three Hershey Kisses!
(maybe four-not sure-ate it instead!)
If you want to create this cute little treat
cut your mailbox (and all parts)
at 1 1/2".
To save you from saying
lots of dirty words wordy durds...
The easiest way to add that
red border strip
on to those insy tinsy scallops
is to run tape on the scalloped portion
and then attach the red strip,
rolling off any excess tape as you go.
I do not do well with wet glue.
Low temp glue was bumpy and dried too fast.
Regular glue took too long to dry...
and that Liquid Glass stuff was everywhere and wet and sticky and...
This is by far the worst part of the entire project (for me)!
MANY hit the trash can
before I hit on the right combination for me!
The stamp set I used
was from
WHOOOS Your Valentine
another great CTMH product.
Used Ruby cardstock and ink.
I've earned a rum drink after that!
Only another 29 to go!
Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
