Authentique Abundant Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope for the RRR April Hop
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog Hop. You should be coming here filled with inspiration after having visited Karen’s lovely blog. With Easter fast approaching, I decided it would be fun to create a Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope using the April Ribbon Club Assortment and Authentique Paper’s Abundant Easter Collection.
The base is a 5″ x 7″ kraft envelope filled with tags and goodies from the Easter Bunny! Yellow and Gray ribbons from this month’s ribbon club really work with this vintage style paper collection.
Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope: The Front Side
The front of the envelope is also decorated. I’ve stacked Daffodil Checkerboard Satin Ribbon with 3/8″ Metal Gray Plaid to form little bow clusters in the corners of the focal image. Yellow bead/berry sprays really brighten things up tucked in with the ribbon and Little Birdie Flowers. A fussy cut banner from the paper collection is a great way to get the party started.
Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope: The Details
- Fussy cut the baby chicks image and pop it up with dimensionals.
- Cover chipboard bunnies with designer paper and add micro rose garlands.
- Create twin bow clusters for the envelope sides and top with roses.
- Pop the ends of a Cardstock Elements banner up on foam dots and adhere to the envelope flap.
Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope: What’s Inside?
This trio of treat tags, the vintage silver spoon and the honey stick have all been dressed up with ribbon. I’ve wrapped a package of Chocolate Biscoff cookies with designer paper and a tag from the collection. You get such a generous amount of the Daffodil Checkerboard Satin and the Metal Grey Plaid that there is plenty to go around! And of course, I had to throw in a little Ivory Burlap String.
All the tags are decorated with an image on the front and a treat pocket on the back.
I’ve added a Spellbinder’s Triple Tear Circle and some cute Eileen Hull Banners and Pennants Dies to each tag.
The third tag has a little notecard tucked into the pocket. Make this by folding the 4″ x 6″ image in half on the long side.
I like to think of these loaded envelopes as Easter Baskets for grownups. It’s fun to dress them up with pretty papers and ribbons.
