Hello, ‘Fetti Fans and happy Wednesday!

We have a great WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS here for you today!  Amy Sheffer has created a fabulous tutorial using the new MAILBOX STARTER Confetti Cuts die set.

Are you asking “what exactly is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS?”  It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  It’s us taking a closer look at how something is created, etc.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

Hello ‘Fetti fans, what do you think of the adorable MAILBOX STARTER Confetti Cuts from the December release? SO darling, don’t you think! Today I thought I’d share a picture tutorial of how to put one together. They’re not hard at all, but sometimes pictures help, so here we go.
Gather your supplies: the mailbox die, card stock or patterned paper, a brad for the mailbox flag, some strong adhesive, such as Scor-Tape, a bone folder, and any stamps, ink, patterned paper, and/or embellishments you’d like (I’m using a BIG NOTES stamp, white pigment ink, and some solid twine.)
Cut one mailbox and one 1.75″ x 3.5″ rectangle. The rectangle will be the curved top of the mailbox.
Decorate the rectangle with stamps and or patterned paper, if desired, and adhere the flag. I attached the flag with a mini brad, so that it will move up and down.
Add Scor-Tape to the flaps, and fold along the perforated lines.
Adhere the short ends of the rectangle to the two long flaps on the mailbox base, curving the rectangle to form the top and sides of the mailbox. Use the bone folder to burnish inside along the tape lines to strengthen the adhesive.
Use the tiny flaps to secure the back to the curved top.

Close the mailbox door and secure to the mailbox using the top flap. I also added some pink twine to the mailbox flag.
Fill with your favorite treat!
Thanks for joining me today!
