Second thoughts

Hi there! I admit, lately I've been having second thoughts. About envelopes, that is! And all this because of Hero Arts monthly challenge since it's about Birthdays, Layered Backgrounds AND Stamped Envelopes! But who said that those envelopes were to be sent out?! Well, I thought so... And here we come. Please welcome an envelope aka paper lantern. Can you see that there's candle burning inside?...

I took my pictures quite early in the morning and well, they're not perfect...


Here's the inside pic...


Once this one was made, I thought about transforming the envelope into a bag for a small gift. And if you offer a candle, well, that's a two in one shot, if you ask me...

On both envelopes you can see some linen ribbon, found it in a nearby store and am quite happy with it. Very easy to stamp on!

And since I was going for texture on this one, I even braided the handles out of natural twine.

Supplies for both envelopes: stamps and felt flower HA; dye inks and Stickles: Ranger; embossing powder Artoz; watermark ink: Tsukineko; cardstock: Bazzil Basics; butterfly punch: Martha Stewart; border punch: Fiskars; linen ribbon, stapler

Thanks for visiting and see you soon!
