Project Throwback - Handmade Envelope Care Package

Confession: I have several projects to show you, but I apparently forgot how to schedule taking photos in the winter time to catch the good light so I don't have any photos of them yet. I hate that it's dark when I get home from work.

Anyway, I was thinking of some Valentine's crafts and I remembered a craft I did really early on in my blogging that I think would be so perfect for your Valentine's Sweetheart!

Handmade Envelope Care Package

 Step 1: Gather patterned paper, pencil, deconstructed envelope, tacky glue.

Step 2: Trace and cut envelopes, fold envelope flaps using a straight edge.

Step 3: Glue the side and bottom flaps together.
Step 4: Glue the top flap to the back of one envelop, stack all this way.

 Step 5: Finish it off with cute notes and candy!

There you have it: a perfect, thoughtful gift for your Sweetie! If you want to check out the original post, you can see it here.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great Friday and don't forget to stop back to party on Saturday!

  2. I love that! What a great idea! I might do this because I just so happen to have some extra envelopes!! : )

  3. I hate that it is dark when I get off from work too! For a while there, the sun was setting before 4pm. That's just criminal. Can't wait to see your projects that you are holding back. Love the handmade envelopes!

  4. This is such a cute and fun idea - I love it! I know what you mean about the lighting though - I always have that issue - especially when I leave the house at 7 am and don't return til 6pm!

  5. Cute! and clever! following from the Pinterest party. http://pinterest.com/kyoti13
