Petal Prints Cards with Tote

Looks a lot like the notebook and beaded pen, doesn't it? I liked that design SO much I made some cards for a gift. I was to be in a Shoebox Swap but was unable to attend so my manager found someone to do the swaps for me and as a token of appreciation for her doing this for me I made her a set of cards with envelopes! Of course you HAVE to stamp on the envelopes! Remember, it's all about the presentation!

For the tote I took a 6" x 6" photo sleeve and cut off the part where you put it in the binder. I used the Snail Tape and attached it to some Bashful Blue card stock. I tore the top and then added some Basic Black card stock and tore that to match. I punched a tiny circle in some Basic Black card stock and then lined up that hole in the center of the 1/2" punch and punched out a circle. I attached the circle with a brad and under it I attached the black gingham ribbon. I cut the ribbon long enough to go all the way around the tote so it could go around the "button" to hold it shut. I did not do any stamping on the tote at all. I wanted what was inside it to be the focal point. A fun and quick project!

Thank you for looking!

Love it! I'm looking for different ways to package cards and this looks great.

Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful gift. Your manager is so lucky! And thanks for the instrucitons on the beaded pen. I'll have to give it a try.

What a great idea...these packages would be way more sturdy than the cello bags. Thanks for sharing. Love your blog.
