Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month - Mini 3D Vignette Valentine
I keep saying, 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 we are sharing inspiration for the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for January 2021, the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox.  How about some additional inspiration that can be made with the same die set and used all throughout the year!

Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month - Mini 3D Vignette Valentine
I love dies that have more than one use and I sure have plans for this one.  Today I created a romantic, tall box that will be perfect to house a gift that’s going out.  All that’s left is to create the matching card and I have a stunning presentation :-)

The detachable flap included in the set feels to me like the powerhouse element.  It’s decorative and has a shadow and I’m already planning more things to make!

There are 17 dies included in the Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox

My Project Today using Mini 3D Vignette Valentines Mailbox

I took the decorated mailbox flap and cut it four times and adhered it to the outside of the box.

Designer Tip:  The mailbox flap has a perforation.  Let there be an inch hangover and simply tuck that fold in over the top of your box for a finished presentation.

    I loved all the teams makes and I fell in love with Kathy Clement’s shaker card! I hope you do a cabinet style for an anniversary and St. Patrick’s day. I have all the cabinet dies and love using them. Well I have to say your work is inspiring and between You, Paul and Yana I need an intervention from glimmering…hope that evoked a chuckle and you are shaking your head knowingly. This months DOMs are very clever and coordinate so well. Made my heart sing and cannot wait to get the sets in the mail!

    You have made 2021 off to a much better start than 2020!ReplyCancel

Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month - Mini 3D Vignette Valentine
It’s finally here – 2021!!  I have it on good authority that 2021 is destined to be so much better than 2020.  One of the things I look forward to when coming into a new year is the coming of spring and all of the spring holidays.  I only thought it fitting to start out the year with a new die of the pointed squarely at Valentine’s Day.  Whether you have a new passion in your life or simply want to tell someone you are thinking about them the Amazing Paper Grace January 2021 Die of the Month – 3D Mini Vignette Valentine’s Mailbox is bound to bring a smile of delight to a daughter, a son, a friend, a teacher or a sweetheart.  For you A2 Card fans, guess what, this one is A2 sized!

As with other 3D Vignettes, the Valentine’s Mailbox collapses flat for an envelope.  I think it’s an intriguing reveal.  I love buying vellum envelopes so that folks get a romantic glimpse of what they are getting ready to open.

Inspiration for 3D Mini Vignette Valentine’s Mailbox

As a kid, I absolutely loved Valentine’s Day.  There was just something about counting up all the little envelopes.  It wasn’t a competition to get the most, but the fact that everyone swapped them and you walked home with a handful of little envelopes mush have shown a measure of sweet kindness.  It was that “thing” about all the little envelopes that inspired me to create a mailbox full of them.  My favorite part is that the front of the mailbox hinges opens to reveal either a sentiment or the picture of a loved one.

It’s a quick and easy assembly for the Mini 3D Vignette Valentine’s Mailbox and in the video, I show you how:

I’m so tickled that this die set also functions just like a 3D Vignette, except for this one is a “mini”.  You simply cut the aperture and fill it with whatever you like.  For my sample above I decided that instead of having the hearts and envelopes extending outside of the card, I wanted them contained down inside of the card.  It makes a sweet little diorama that folds flat for mailing.

Because of the “mini” size, it fits onto an A2 Card and inside of an A2 envelope.  I thought it would be great to make a shaped mini note card.  It’s a lovely size for a notecard and is a breath of fresh air for me after becoming so accustomed to large cards.

I hope you like it!  I honestly found joy in playing around with this month’s die and it was a real joy to design. Plus I can’t wait to use it after Valentine’s Day since the base is a 3D Vignette.

are sharing lots of tutorials in a place that we can chat and answer questions –

Hi there sweet friends! Today I am taking another look at the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for December 2020, Rose Garden Promise.

Some links may be affiliate links, buying products through these links generates a commission at no cost to you

Rose Garden Promise Inspiration

I was bursting with inspiration for this 5 x 7 card front.  It is so reminiscent of stained glass, which I love and it also rivals my love for roses.  ‘God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December,’ a quote by James M Barrie.  It is precisely that quote that inspired me to think of roses at the end of the year. It has much to do with the promise of an approaching spring, buds bursting forward, and the gift of hope.  As one who loves rituals, I finished off 2019 with a die template that featured roses and decided it was worthwhile to pay them homage at the end of 2020.”

Isn’t it only fitting to go forward with hope for the future and for new and worthwhile things that will break through.  From the entire Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team, let this be a beautiful end to your year; we hope that through making, it brings with it the bonus of lovely memories.

My Project Today using Rose Garden Promise

I so wanted to cut the roses apart and use the motifs on my card and matching box.  So I cut the die from gold mirrored cardstock and took a couple of seconds to snip each of the motifs.  The smaller motif seemed perfect for a card and I used the larger motif for the top of my box.

Designer Tip:  When snipping the box, be sure to include the outside rim of the die instead of trimming from the inlay.  You’ll have less snipping to do that way.

    I have been a member of the APGDOM since it started and not one regret. Anyone who has crafted with me loves your elegant, sophisticated dies! And you never fail to inspire or surprise me with these dies. I still am playing with the telephone and typewriter – such a surprise but I love them. I think my favorites will always be the cabinet dies. I have such fun with them and wish for a valentine/anniversary one. This die is lovely and reminds me of my mother and grandmother who had a tradition of three roses – I had that in my wedding bouquet and three roses in a mini cake topper bouquet. Thanks for the memories, Becca.

    My plan is to make a gift card holder with this set, lighted picture frame, & a Christmas diorama for a small nutcracker in center frame. (Maybe even a spinner card!) Wish be luck…

    Have a Merry Christmas!ReplyCancel

So glad that you are creating dies for us as I have followed your work for a long time and made many things from them.
