Amazing Paper Grace January Die of the Month Blog Hop – Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox


Hello to all !!!

Remember the days in grade school when you dreamed of all the little envelopes you would collect in your pouch from Valentine's Day?  Well, we gotcha covered! Today I am introducing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for January 2021, the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox.

Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these wonderful dies to create with.

Sweet hearts and petite envelopes are a symbol of love.  The Amazing Paper Grace Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox harkens back to the days where you thought that the number of envelopes measured how loved you were.  No worries, this elegant mailbox holds a bouquet of enveloped surprises and is a clever way to hide some cute little messages.  Oh, and the front of the mailbox opens!  Becca uses the inspiration from a vintage mailbox as the basis for this elegant representation where romantic and cute go hand in hand.

Don't worry if you don't have a sweetheart this year.  After the holiday, this set can be used as a blue mailbox.  Did you notice it is a mini-sized 3D Vignette?! Built just like the grand sized vignettes that came before it, this little mini stands 4.75-inches tall and folds flat for mailing to your sweetheart!

There are 17 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox.

My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox

I just loved assembling the whole piece and the result touches your heart, right?

I have used the lime vanilla and very pastel teal aquamarine blue for my mail box. 

I have used it for the valentine theme and the inside of the mail box has a picture of that fits perfectly for the valentine theme. This can be used as mini album, box for cute keepsakes etc. 

Together with this I have a slim line card with ruffled rosebuds from the Candlewick rose buds etched dies on the labels from the Candlewick ovals.

I have used the die cuts layered two times and that made my mail box really sturdy to stand as a decor piece.

Supplies:  Coloured card stock, silver card stock, pearls, couple picture

Stamps:   from stash

Paper: 250 gsm coloured paper, ribbon

Ink: Versafine onyx black ink.

Accessories:  Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month - Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox

Elegant Candy Bag with Amazing Paper Grace

Hi friends

Giving favours as chocolates in pretty little bags has always been such a favourite thing for me. I love making these small classy bags and boxes and fill them up with nick knacks.
These bags are so easy to make and can be made very quickly. I like to decorate them with ornate dies from Amazing Paper Grace so that they look just awesome.

So here is a pretty little basket with Candlewick Canopy die designed by Becca.

I am so thankful to Becca for sending over this die to me.

Here is a step by step tutorial for this project.

1. Cut cardstock for making the candy box measuring 8.5 inches by 11 inches.
On the longer side , score at 3/4 inch, 4 1/2 inches , 6 1/2 inches and 10 1/4 inches.

2. Score at 2 inches and 6 1/2 inches on the shorter side.

3. Mark a point B on the upper edge, 2 inches away from the right middle line. Make a score line from point A to B. Repeat on the other four sides.

4. Apply adhesive on the part show on the card stock.

5. Adhere the two sides after folding along the score lines as shown.

6. Cut two pieces of pattern paper to fit the front and back of the candy box. Add a mat layer of gold paper at the back.

7. Cut two strips of gold card stock measuring 5/8 th inch and 4 3/8 inches and make score lines.

8. Adhere the pieces on the base card stock like this.

9. Cut 4 pieces of die cuts from Candlewick Canopy die , two in gold card stock and two in white card stock.

10. Adhere these pieces together, with gold die cut aligned a little offsetting from the white die cut.

11. Fold the two flaps together and secure with ribbon. For this, punch two holes on the folds and secure with ribbon.

12.  Cut the die cut pieces into parts like this.

13. Adhere one part of the die cut on the front and the second part at the back. Add two handles from two more die cuts. Add a sentiment using the Double Halo Etched dies and create a tag . Decorate with Candlewick Rosebuds flowers.
