Mailbox Re-Vamp

I wanted to share a little project I completed this afternoon. My old mailbox was in pretty sad shape, so I purchased a new one at Lowe's. Nice and clean, but oh so boring!

Months ago I purchased the Cricut Design Studio, but have never had time to play with it to figure out how to use it, so I figured this was the perfect chance to try it out.

First I cut planned out the branches and cut them out of two different colors of brown vinyl (Oh My Crafts has vinyl packs at great prices). It was a little tricky to place these on the mailbox smoothly, so next time I would definitely use the transfer paper.

Then, after re-sizing them on my laptop, I cut a couple of different birds and leaves.

Here's the finished product---I really love it!
