Money Envelope Tutorial

Hello, everyone! I took pictures for this tutorial last week and did not get a chance to upload them then I got sick. My whole family got the flu. Terrible! I finally got my energy back.

Thought some of you might like to make the money envelope I've been talking during Christmas. I made this a Valentine one.

I use card stock for the tutorial. Pattern paper is too busy to see the score lines. You are welcome to use pattern paper when you make yours.

1.Cut a piece of card stock at 7-1/2" x 8-1/2". On the 7-1/2" side score at 3-1/2" and at 7". Rotate the paper counter clockwise. On the 8-1/2" side score at  1-1/4" and at 8". The lines are drawn in in the photo are for instruction purpose only.

2.Cut off the pieces as shown in the photo. Discard the cut out pieces. You'll have 1/2" flap at the bottom and the side and 1-1/4" flap for the opening.

3.Trim slightly on the part without the flaps for easy folding.

4.Stamp the envelope before assembling if using card stock or leave it plain.

5.Punch half a circle at the top on the part without the flap. This help for easy access of stuff out of the envelope.

6.Use a corner rounder punch and round off the corners on the 1-1/4" flap.

7.Turn the paper to the inside and add sticky strip to the 1/2" flaps at the bottom and side.

8.Adhere the envelope together.

9.For the closure of the flap at the top, I stamp a scallop circle image and mount it onto envelope but not onto the flap.

10.Decorate the front of the envelope.

You can put money in the envelope or

Add some candies to it.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial. Tell me what you think.

Just For You Tag

Greetings my blog friends! It's already Friday. Time sure goes by fast when you are having fun. Back to school for my kids yesterday. They had an early holiday break so an early back to school day.

I made this tag for Martin for Christmas. His Christmas gift. It is like a ticket for a trip for his birthday. It is a surprise place where are going. He had to wait until  August to find out.

papers- whisper white, silver glitter paper, basic black, brush silver
ink- basic black
accessories- silver cord, 1/8" hand held punch, word window punch, modern label punch, top note die, lattice bigz die, taffeta ribbon

Thank You Cards

Happy New Year everyone! Did you have a wonderful Christmas? Mine was the same every year except last year's. Christmas eve at the in laws side and on Christmas day for my side. For both sides there were a few relatives who couldn't make it to the parties. Some had to work and some decided to go somewhere else. It was a pretty quiet Christmas.

I needed some "thank you" cards so I made them in white and all shades of blues that I have. Snowflakes are my favourite. I made my Christmas cards in red snowflakes and now I made the "thank you" cards in blue snowflakes. I never get tired of snowflakes.

stamps- Snowflakes, Curly Cute
papers- whisper white, bajah breeze, pacific point
inks- bajah breeze, night of navy, pacific point
accessories- midnight muse satin stitched ribbon, slot punch, 1" and 1-1/4" circle punches, northern flurry embossing folder, apothecary accents framelits
