Graphic 45: Love Sweet Love Policy Envelope Wallet Tutorial with Nature Sketchbook
Hello, Friends! I’m up on the Graphic 45 blog today where I’m sharing this Love Sweet Love Policy Envelope Wallet Tutorial. It’s just the perfect little gift for Valentine’s Day.
Look at alll the darling little bee images in Nature Sketchbook. I decided to riff off that idea and turn it into a Love Sweet Love theme…complete with a honey spoon! Tea with honey is one of my favorite things!
These metal pieces are painted with Black Soot Distress Paint to match my yellow, black and red color palette. For the keyhole, I let the paint set for about 1 minute, then I wiped off with a barely damp paper towel.
Just as bees love to cluster around the hive, cluster your embellishments around a focal image to create a real visual impact.
Sweet Surprises on the inside
Join two policy envelopes together and what do you get? A really fun wallet/pocket combo. I altered the red policy envelope to create the pocket, and I’ll show you how in the Snapguide tutorial at the end of this post.
The pocket is filled with pretty ephemera cards, a post card and a delicious herbal tea bag to go along with the honey spoon on the front of the wallet.
Don’t you just love these gorgeous images? To create a custom string tie opening, simply glue chipboard buttons on top of the black discs . It adds a great pop of color!
Wanna see what’s in the pocket?
