The theme for this kit is mail, with hints of all things vintage and days gone by. With the dies you can create large 3D vintage letterboxes to hold small gifts, gift cards, treats and more. There are stamps and dies to create flat mailboxes perfect for card fronts and tags, complete with a working flag you can put up and down! There are gorgeous stencils that are just amazing and can be used in all kinds of ways to give your projects a bit of a mail flair. We cannot neglect to mention the beautiful papers, envelope dies, a separate trimmings kit and MORE! You will not want to miss out on this one!

First up, I have a cute little "mailbox" goodie box made with all of the kit goodies! The pieces are all cut with the dies in the kit.
There is a die that cuts the mailbox slot, and you can put it on the top of the lid or on the front of the box, or leave it off! The little lock is removable, so the lid opens. How cute is that!!! The details and thought put into this kit is just amazing.
These are just so adorable and would be fun to make to hold gift cards/small gifts/or for gifts for kids and teachers at school. I added a strip of the striped paper at the bottom for a bit more color on the front and an enamel dot from my stash.

Next up, I have two pockets that I made with the backer die from the box. I cut the blue piece (backer die), then added the front "Sending Love" piece. I die cut a bow, stamped it and added a flower over the top with a red enamel dot (from my stash) and a bird from kit. The backer die folds at the bottom, so I folded it up in the back and used it as a pocket. (See pic below.)


Don't you just love the papers and pieces in this kit? It really makes putting something together super easy...just cut them out and paste together!

The back of these have a pocket in which you could add a Christmas letter, photo, gift card or what not! I just slipped one of the pre-printed pieces in there for the photo.

And last, these are just little gift card holders that are die cut with the gift card die and the pre-printed papers. You can leave them as is, or dress them up with an extra bow die cut and such!

What do you think of this adorable kit? I apologize for the wait for my projects and hope you enjoyed them! Have a great weekend! Visit these gals to see more: Betsy Veldman (who also has a video on how to make these boxes!), Amy ShefferHeather NicholsMelissa Phillips, and Kay Miller.
