Okay. . ..you're like Holy Cow, you were busy! Actually other than coloring the images, it wasn't so bad. On Saturday I went to several garage sales and I got a super awesome deal on greeting card size envelopes! A shoe size box full of envelopes for a $1. Seriously! Just a dollar. . .but now, I have a ton of A9 size envelopes that I don't typically use. LOL! I had created a tutorial in the past using greeting card size envelopes so I decided to work on this project and use up some of the envelopes. The original tutorial was a holder for a candy bar but for this project, rather than inserting a candy bar, I decided a cocoa packet was more appropriate. Scroll down for the tutorial.


I decided to create 3 sets of 3 cocoa packet holders using the super cute Angels Landing "Polar Bear Cubs" images. I colored the images with my Copic Markers, decorated the envelopes, and inserted cocoa packets in the pockets.

I also decided to create an altered heart box and the Button Bugs images were perfect for this box. I printed the butterfly images on to vellum paper and designer paper, cut the images out and mounted them on to one another. I then added dew drops to the butterflies. The button border around the box was created by using one of the button images from the Button Bug digi set, lining them in a row and printing them on to designer paper.

Anyway, don't forget to comment for the chance to win the 2 sets of Angels Landing digi images. Try out the tutorial below. It's a super easy project. If you want the recipe for the projects I created, please email me at cardinsired@gmail.com.

Don't forget to hop on to Broni's blog to follow the blog hop trail. . :)

Hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
