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!

  1. Oh WOW!! Can this mail box be any cuter? NOOOOO!!! Love it, every detail is fabulous, but the “handle” takes the center stage, how incredibly creative!!
    Makes me want to take a second look at that die. Thank you both, Mary and Betsy for sharing this adorable 3-D project.
    The Posted Stamp punch gives you an exact idea of the size of this mail box, simply adorable.
