Sweet Mailbox...A Punishment?

Have you seen these adorable little mailboxes at the Target Dollar Spot? They come in red, white and pink. I think it was last year that they made their debut. Paper crafters were buying them up to alter but I never was lucky enough to find them near me. I snagged some this year though. My only question was, "what would you do with them after you fill them with some yummy treats and eat them up?!?!" Well, as a mother of three girls of course I had to find a use for them. So here is the plan...each of my girls will get one (they will each look different so that means be watching for 2 more mailboxes over the next few days) and when they are fighting or mean to their sister, they will have to draw a picture for their sister or write a note to them and stick it in their mailbox. And of course I imagine they will do it when things are going well too.
This one is for Brooke, my 3 year old. The paper is Candied Apples by Sasafrass Lass. I LOVE this paper. So cheerful and pretty! The ribbon is the new Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon from Stampin Up! The stamp is from the new set by Stampin Up! called Happy Heart. I just love sweet! I used a Circle Rhinestone brad for the center of the flower that is on the heart. When I told her it was all done she said "ooh, I love him!"
