Cute Little Vellum Crafty Secrets Treat Envelopes

Hello "Crafty Friends"

Can you believe a "NEW" holiday ...Valentine's Day is only a month away.....
and we "just" celebrated the New Year it seems.
Is it me, or does it seem the older you get, the faster time goes by?

Oh well, nothing we can do about it, except maybe make the most out of our days!
I had intended to have this post up and running at midnight last night,
but I have been having a few computer issues and it just didn't happen...sigh!!

 
I do however, have something fun to show you.
These cute little vellum envelope treat pouches made using


This kit is full of crafty goodness, it is hard to decide which one to use.
So, that being said, you will see more of these images/papers on my blog
during the next 3 weeks or so!!




These were pretty easy to make, I just cut my vellum the size I wanted,
scored them, used a Spellbinders Scallop Circle die to cut the flaps,
sewed up the sides, added little velcro dots under the bows
to close them, and decorated with 2 of the images from the kit!
On this particular page, there are 9 images.
I chose 2 and "fussy cut" them out.


Aren't they cute?
They can be filled with candy hearts, kisses, a big marshmallow heart
or whatever I want!
I had hoped to have them filled, but I have not been out of the house
since the weather has gotten so bad...we have 23" of snow and counting!

Well that's it for today...oh wait....
