I belong to a group message board over at A Cherry On Top and recently there was a challenge to make an altered envelope or postcard. This proved to be such a fun first time crafty experience for me!
I started with a business sized envelope that had a window opening in it. I cut the envelope down on the short side and made a flap with a string closure and a very old brad. I covered the entire envelope with scraps of scrapbook paper. The flower images were fussy cut from a magazine. Yes, I did all the fussy cutting!! I think I'm getting better at it. ;0) Then I distressed and added stamping and stickers.
The floral "postage stamp" and "Sweet Blooms" banner were cut from the same magazine. I had so much fun with this challenge! I'm already working on another altered envelope.
That's it from me today! A quick post to hopefully start your week off with a smile!
I'll be adding this project to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything Goes
Try It On Tuesday ~ Pretty Papers
Art Journal Journey ~ Come Fly With Me
