Doodling on the New Papers!

Here's a fun little project that takes about all of 15 minutes to do. I think it took me longer to hunt down the bag of Life Savers than it did to make this. These are great for little "Thank Yous" or for a Make N Take. They are quick and fun to make and if you use the decorative papers it's even quicker!!! I used the 5 in 1 envelope template to make the pocket. It holds two Life Savers!

Once the envelope was done I stamped the Doodle That flower using Black Staz-on ink. I colored it in with the watercolor crayons and my blender pen. I sponged the edges and added the Pretty in Pink layer. I taped it to the envelope. I would recommend using glue. When you put the candy in the tape lifts up a bit off the edges. Glue would hold it in place much better. Add your candy and it's ready. You can tape or glue the flap shut or leave it open, either way it's cute! I am thinking about adhering mine shut but before I do that I want to add a brad to the flap. Or maybe a button! Just a little finishing touch makes a world of difference!

I hope you have fun with this.
Thank you for stopping by!
