Fabulous Up-cycled Mail Holder

I am so super excited to show off these bad boys!! I was looking around on the web for up-cycled or recycled craft ideas because HI! IM BROKE! LOL...anyway I saw people making all these cute magazine racks and file holders and so on and so on out of random boxes they already had.  Well guess what? I can afford that!  So I have nowhere "officially" to put our mail and thought I could just make one, right?  Well...this is what I did today along with the usual cleaning, cooking, kids and cleaning. (yea i said that twice)

I got some boxes right from my cupboard and went to work.  It's really funny whenever I start one of my projects because the kids always ask right away what I'm doing and I know they think I'm nuts, lol.  My 3yr old thinks I can make anything, I mean ANYTHING.  He will ask me to make him a train out of paper...yeaaaaa...I'm not THAT good. LOL.  I am using Photobucket this time so I can just show you in collage form my tutorial.
