Last spring I was involved in a cat-themed swap, and part of the swap was to make some pretty packaging. This is one of the envelopes I made to hold some swap items.
The cat image was fussy-cut from a recycled greeting card and popped up on foam tape. Behind the kitty is a grass border die-cut (Lawn Fawn) and a doily from my stash. The butterfly die-cut is from Joy Crafts, and I added a gem to the body. I used a 12x12" sheet of patterned paper from my old stash to create the envelope. I watched a few video tutorials on YouTube but made my own custom-size envelope to fit the items that went inside.
Here's the back. The bow punch is from Tim Holtz, and the handmade stamp was received in friend mail. The envelope is held closed with a velcro half-circle so it is reusable.
I would also like to support the following challenges: Butterfly Challenge Spin the Butterfly Wheel with the Letter G (Gems plus Butterfly) 2/3; Crafts Galore Encore October AG 2/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper October UE; Just Keep on Creating AG UE
Thank you for looking at my goody envelope! Wishing you a joyful day and Happy Hopping!
