Gift for a Friend

After I was sent this gorgoeus little folder from Zoe the other day, I knew I had better send something nice to repay her! After much searching, I found a tutorial for a cute little folder made of envelopes. As I was sending Zoe a selection of images, I decided that this was the project for me! You can find the tutorial that I followed here. Its easier than you think, I promise!

Here is the view from the front, when the folder is all done up. I used my new Stampin' Up DP in Bashful Blue. What do you think of the sentiment?! Isn't it fun?! I received this stamped image recently from Sheila and I just love it!

Here is the view from the top. You can see the envelopes containing all of the stamped images. The Stampin' Up tab thingies are also visible here. I left them deliberately blank so that Zoe could personalise the folder herself for whatever she ultimately decides to keep in there. I actually ordered these punch-outs off Australian ebay (!) as I wanted to make sure I would use them before I went ahead and ordered the punch. I really like them though so I guess thats just one more thing to add to my wish list!

And finally, here is the side view. I love how it looks so neat and tidy. It's a great present to send through the post as it folds up flat so nothing gets damaged.

It's amazing what you can create using some old envelopes that have lost their stick and a Weetabix box isn't it?!

Goodie List........
Stamps: From image swap - Sheila, where did you get it?!
Paper: Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue DP.
Embellishments: Nestabilities, Stampin' Up! tab punchies, Eyelets and ribbon from stash.

Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather!

Re Misi: Just sell your cards at reasonable prices and then it's down to the personal choice of the customer. Mine aren't flying out the door either :(

Hope things pick up for both of us!
