Vintage Mailbox

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I’m posting my first DT inspiration project today for Simply Crafty SVGs and I can’t wait to show you what I made, lol! What an adorable cut file – a Vintage Mailbox that I created in one of my all-time favorite color combos of black, white and pink. So fun!

I cut the mailbox base from black cardstock and all of the coordinating pieces in pink and white polkadot paper.

I cut the decorative oval in the center in plain pink cardstock and embellished it with pink gemstones.

I also cut the ‘MAIL’ label for the lid from plain pink cardstock. I adhered a paper flower from my stash as well as a velcro circle underneath to keep the lid closed.

I took this project one step further and made a set of six note cards to tuck inside. ;)

All the card bases are black with blank white inserts to write custom messages. I used pink polka dot paper on three of them and plain pink cardstock on the other three, and adhered tiny black heart die cuts (from my stash), all to coordinate with the mailbox. :)
