My DT Mailbox Project for OSAAT challenge 101 Digi or don't

Here is my DT project for Challenge 101 - Digi or don't over at One stitch at a time. I have just used Digi paper for this project, no image. The digi paper I have used is from Panda Bear Designs and is from a collection called Chocolate Valentine 2 which is available HERE.

We are lucky to be sponsored by Joanna Sheen this week

so come over and join in our challenge HERE

I have seen lots of these American style mailboxes in blogland and came across a fantastic tutorial HERE which I followed to make mine.

The butterflies have been die cut with my new Cheery Lynn butterflies set, there are three different ones and they are all gorgeous. I have used Memory box's Locina buckle die for the pretty ribbon buckle on both sides of the box and the ribbon is from a Smirk spool.

I have also used 2 eyelets to feed the ribbon through to hold the flap closed and an eyelet so the post box sign can be moved.

I am entering this project into the following challenges
