the pretend and play mail carrier kit - FINALLY!

So my craft a month goal turned into a six week journey this time around.  I'm usually pretty punctual, but the self-imposed deadline on this one just seemed to alluded me.

I had soooooo much fun making my eighth craft till Christmas - a Pretend and Play Mail Carrier Kit (actually two of them).  The best part of this kit is that any of the pieces can be made for adult gifts or repurposed items.  (I personally would love to receive a unique set of fabric stationery and postcards for my birthday next month - wink, wink, hint, hint!)



I'm finally wrapping up this craft with a post including all the links to the tutorials.  Click on the words not the pictures.  Enjoy!








Craft on!

I just finished a post office set for our 4 grandchildren. They are going to love playing with them. They each get their own mailbox. Each family gets a mailbag and plenty of envelopes, stationery, postcards and stamps to share.
