You’re Gonna Love This Mailbox!


Special delivery!  Want an adorable idea for Valentine's Day and beyond?  Check out what Betsy Johnson, a member of my Stampin' Pretty Pals Virtual Community, put together for a very special 3-D mailbox! 

I love the classic red and navy details and the bling from the silver glitter paper!  And what a cute shape, all evolved from the Stampin' Up! Mini Milk Carton Bigz Die. The overall dimensions of the mailbox are 4 1/4" high (to the peak of the rounded top) by 1 5/8" square. 

Want to know exactly how she created it?  HERE'S THE FREE MAILBOX TUTORIAL PDF so  you can try it for yourself.  Thanks, Betsy!  Betsy doesn't have a blog so she would love your feedback below!
