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

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 created a vignette in pretty pale pastel pink an blue with gold, pearl, wooden and mulberry flower embellishments.   

I love the cute little paper envelopes and hearts in varying sizes and, of course, the intricate pattern on the front of the adoreable little mailbox.


Vignettes are such fun, but it's great to get more mileage from your dies.   I decided to make a free-standing card, die-cutting the front and the back of my card in the shape of a mail box. 

This time, I went with a pretty traditional "Valentine" colour combination of red and black with gold accents.   I love how cute it looks !

Designer Tip:  I think it is important to make the reverse of the Vignette as pretty and as neat as the front, so I die-cut an extra mail box to stick on the reverse with the embossed features of the die showing up clearly.

Supplies:   Wooden hearts and mulberry paper flowers from my stash

Paper:       Centura Pearl Card Stock and Gold Mirror Card
Accessories:  Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month - Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox
