Spellbinders Sweetheart Envelope & Notecard Set for Make & Take Tuesday
Hello, Friends! For this week’s Make & Take Tuesday, I’m sharing a Christmas ornament made with Spellbinders Sweetheart Envelope & Notecard Set. It’s the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the month for December 2022. Although designed for Valentine’s Day, my mind immediately went to Christmas tree ornament. So I pulled out Prima “Christmas in the Country” and went to work to bring my vision to life.
Can’t you just picture these adorable little bundles hanging all over your tree? Oh, I see so many possibilities for this clever little die set! What about a hanging Advent Calendar with a bit of chocolate, or a tea bag, or tiny gift card inserted in each envelope? Wouldn’t that be fun? Or, leave off the string hanger and make these as table favors for your holiday celebrations. They would also be gorgeous done up in wedding paper (I have weddings on my mind right now!) or baby shower paper. The possibilities are nearly endless!
Pretty Backwards and Forwards
The back side of this little envelope is as lovely as the front. First, layer the filigree insert and frame to die cut a window in the back of the envelope base. Then, adhere gold foil cardstock inside the envelope. Next, glue the filigree insert outside the envelope back. Die cut the flower petals and leaves that come with the die set to dress it up even more. So, so cute, and very quick and easy to make!
Pretty inside and Out!
Although this precious little envelope is only 4″ x 2 3/4″ when finished, it can still hold a surprising amount of goodies. Create a little notecard using the frame die, then dress it up with scraps of designer paper.
Die cut the filigree heart and back it with woodgrain cardstock for a really sweet insert. And an ATC tag fits perfectly inside the envelope, too!
The thing I like the best about this die is that you can use up all those itty bitty scraps of paper while making something truly beautiful. And the die is extremely versatile. I’ll be back on Throwback Thursday to share more ideas for using the die. You won’t want to miss that!
