Hello crafty friends!! Jeanne back here this month with a super fun project I created as my first Valentine project this year. I used items from the February Cards, Tags, & More Kit ! I figured since this is a holiday of love, its nice to send someone a little special something just to say “I’m thinking of you” or something along those lines (haha)!
I have created other similar projects such as loaded envelopes, envelope flip albums among other ideas for snail mail.
This loaded envelope box measures 6 1/4 X 10 with the width measuring 1 inch. On the tutorial that I followed , the envelope its self was created with designer paper, I decided to create it using some heavy textured cardstock. I then just cut and adhered paper from Simple Stories My Valentine paper pad from this months kit. I also used one of the smaller banner stickers from the sticker sheet, which I love by the way!!
I then embellished the envelope with some laces, paper doily, some liquid pearls, & small stickers. I didn’t want to embellish it too much and not be able to tell it is an envelope box.
I created some cute tags using the Ranger Manilla Craft Tags from the kit. I did cut out some cute images from another Valentine collection I had left over scraps from. They matched perfect with this month paper collection. I altered a queen of hearts playing card using cheese cloth and some appliques. I also altered a guest check with laces, made a small pocket with some tiny tags made with scraps from the paper I used on the box itself. I also created a paper rosette with a heart applique in the center, I lightly altered a tea bag, they are super cute!!
On this video you can see the rest of the project! I hope that you like what I created for my 1st project this month and feel inspired to make something like this or any other kind of snail mail that I’m sure a family member, friend, crafty friend might love to receive this month!
