I am participating in this month's Mind Wide Open challenge...
Gail provided this lovely image along with the word prompt "Heart".
Since the supplies were recycled, I thought it would also qualify for Susan's Met. Monday over at Between Naps on the Porch (on Monday)
Here is my entry: (you can click on image for a larger view)
I made a tag with the image provided and embellished it with crystals, stamps and ribbon.
And the little 'pouch' to put the tag in is a recycled envelope. I learned this technique from my very talented friend, Judy!
So you start out with one of those return-mail envelopes you get in the mail. Usually it comes with bills, and since we pay our bills online we have all these envelopes to use!
Measure and cut in half.
The 'window' side is very usable, too, so don't throw it away!!
Seal the back flap of the envelope.
Then turn back over and mark the top corners and cut.
After you've cut the corners off, fold the front flap down.
Now it's ready for you to glue on assorted papers and embellish!
Courtney and I have made several of these envelopes, punched holes in the sides, attached rings and made mini photo albums!
There are many lovely submissions for the Mind Wide Open challenge..pop over there and vote for your favorite!
