Envelopes should be pretty too...

I love to put goodies in pretty envelopes and I simply love love love the glassine envelopes that are out on the market right now.  They can hold a lot more then the regular paper envelope and I love the way they look all altered up.

Today I have a 3x3 glassine envelope that I altered up with some left overs I had on my desk from a few projects I created over the weekend.

Products Used:
Glassine Envelope
Prima Flowers (left and middle)
Purple Cows Punch It Autumn Punch for decorative Corner
Cosmo Cricket Evangeline Pattern paper (decorative corner)
Websters big leaves
green wire
random white rose (right) colored with "Spun Sugar" Distress Marker
K12 Studio "Thanks" Mothers day stamp set
Distress Ink

Here is a close up

I used the Purple Cows CraftGeek Wind It to wind my wire into the "heart" or leaf shape. 

Thanks so much for looking and I will be back soon with another project.  Till then... Happy Crafting.

Pin It!
