Shutter mail holder



Summer is a time for weddings and like every other summer we had a few weddings to attend.   Weddings are always such a fun time for gifts and I always use the excuse to make or create new projects. 

I love the idea of using a shutter to hold mail.  I first saw this creative idea back in 2005 we I was planning my wedding and was hoping to make one for the wedding to hold wedding cards in.  I didn't find any shutters so my idea was put on hold.  Then about 3 years ago at a 50% off sale at value village I scored this shutter.  I can't believe I had been hanging on to this gem for that many years but I have been so finally this summer I got it out and made my project.  First I painted it up, sand papered it and then I applied the couples Monogram on it using vinyle and my Cricut. 


And here is the finished product, hanging on the couples wall, complete with the shelf hubby added to it and the key hooks.
