You've got mail!

 
You've got mail!

I made these little nugget mailboxes to take to a stamping group get together next week...made one...and then made another...and then another...they can be addicting. I can not take credit for this design...I have seen them all over the net...but hey...wish I was this creative to think these things up!
I hate to play favorites...but I would open this mailbox first!

 
Two Hershey Nuggets



cut your paper pieces...the dotted piece is optional if you are making LOTS! Stamp your sentiment at this step.



and then wrap around the candy and glue with sticky strip or glue dots...anything other adhesive will probably come undone.... I tried not to glue this piece to the candy on the bottom
...you will see why in the next step
(Hey Larissa...this is the new Stampin Up heart border punch we have been chatting about)


You can't do this if you glue your covering to the candy on the bottom...you could slip your candy out at this step and glue the door to the bottom of the mail box...if you want...but I am all about fast and easy!



After you trim your paper piece-add your flag with a glue dot  and embellish! I added pearls on the bottom piece of the flag and on the front panel so it looked like a handle. 

I hope you have fun and would love to see your creations...let me know if you make these!
