altered mailbox

for the month of june at artzdescrap, DT Candy Lagazon shares her tutorial on a self-made mailbox using corrugated and illustration boards.

this is my take on it using toy boxes from my kids' supposed-to-be-thrown-away boxes...

just imagine the things you can do with these, saving the environment and adding creativity as well!

a really cool idea of tearing to expose the corrugation which is distressingly beautiful!
