Try It Tuesday~Just use what you have !

Hi guys!!!!
I love creating with what I have.  I have an idea and just go with it~making it work as I go.  This is an vintage mail box front (brass).  I wanted to make an interesting piece of Christmas Decor.  This is what I came up with~
The music paper is vintage, as is the Christmas ornament and Scrabble tile.  The photo is by Tim Holtz, the envelope by Maya Road, the Snow Flake is by Basic Grey and a few extras.  The envelope collage is adhered with large Glue Dots ( that's all you will need)

Here is the back~
Take note of how the frame sits on the hinge.  Worked like a charm:) Perfect frame
 stand and so beautiful!

and these are the parts I used to make this~

One gorgeous vintage door hinge ~ washed in soap and water, dried with towel.

Brass mail box front and door hinge cleaned.

The inside is prepared with felt, as is the bottom corners
 (so, no scratching the table or surface) that it will sit on.
Very fun project. Get those interesting things out of the cabinet and make something  so you can enjoy those cool things that caught your eye.
See ya soon~
