Creative Circle January You’ve Got Mail and Give Away


This month’s Creative Circle Challenge is You’ve Got Mail – a darling mailbox perfect for Valentine’s Day.  Here’s my first mailbox!

Creative Circle January 2016 03

My card holding mailbox is made from Melon Mambo card stock and the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  The lid and flap are done with stencil paste and the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask.

My cards that fit inside the mailbox are made with No Bones About It.  The mailbox easily holds (3) 3 x 3 cards and (3) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards.

These cards were inspired by an “x-ray” card I saw on Splitcoast by Janet Holmes.  I thought the idea was so cute!

The little 3 x 3’s fit through the opening under the flap.

Then I switched gears and made a mailbox without the card dividers inside and a window sheet over the opening to hold candy.

For this one, I used Sweet Lil’ Things Designer Series paper and the sentiment from the Occasions Mini set – Greatest Greetings.  I punched hearts from every punch I could dig up in my craft room!  They are glittered with Dazzling Details.

  1. Oh gosh so cute and very clever with a clear cover to reveal candies!

  2. I love the XRays and the dino’s. That is so cute and the mail box is perfect for any time of year. And of course you would put candy in it…now it is a MUST have.

  3. What a darling mailbox and so many cute little goodies could be put into it. I could see this being used for many occasions throughout the year.

  4. Oh Fran, they’re both adorable. I’ve been holding out on the No Bones stamp. I don’t have any kids close to me to use it for but darn it all it is just so stinkin’ cute. The x-ray idea is perfect! Sigh lol. And the clear acetate on the little door to make the mailbox into a treat box… perfect!
