Hoppy Mail - i-Crafter New Release

Welcome! i-Crafter has new products releasing today and I have used the new Mailbox die set by Lori Whitlock along with previously released Animalopes die set to create these fun bunny mailboxes. These would make cute Easter decorations or even treat holders. These were so adorable that I made a gray and a white one!

I started out by die cutting the parts for the mailbox from gray cardstock using the dies from the Mailbox die set.

Then I started to assemble the mailbox starting with the body of the mailbox (long rectangular piece). I folded along all the score lines using a mountain fold. Then placed my adhesive along the end tab and secured the other end to the tab to create the body of the mailbox. See pictures below.

Next, I placed adhesive on the tabs at the back of the mailbox and secured the back piece to the tabs.

I turned the mailbox over and adhered half of the hinge to the base of the mailbox's front opening.

To make the front door to the mailbox, I placed adhesive on the "teeth" of the long strip and adhered it to the curved edge of the front door and to the small tabs on each side. Then I adhered the front door to the hinge on the mailbox.

With the mailbox completed, I created the embellishments to decorate it with. To create a bunny, I used the Animalopes die set. I die cut 2 bunny ears in both gray and pink. Eyes in black and a pink nose. I die cut a carrot using the unicorn horn die and green carrot tops from the whiskers die. I then assembled my components to adhere onto the mailbox.

I scored the bottom of the gray ears then folded them back to be able to adhere them onto the mailbox. I then fussy cut the pink ears and adhered one onto each gray ear. Then I adhered the ears onto the mailbox.

I adhered the eyes and nose to the front door and drew a mouth using a black marker.

Next, I created a carrot to add to the mailbox flag. I adhered the carrot tops to the back of the carrot. Then I cut the part of the flag off that would show past the carrot and adhered the carrot on. Then I used a brad from my stash to secure it through the hole on the mailbox.

No bunny is complete without a fluffy tail, so I adhered a white pom-pom on the back of the mailbox!

To complete the mailbox, I decided to put it on a post. I used a wood candle holder from a craft shop (approx. 3" tall) and painted it with white acrylic paint. When it was dry, I adhered my white bunny mailbox onto it.
