Technically, the 12 Day thing is over, but …
Just in case you know anyone with LOTS of pattern paper …
cute eh? Addie is sending these to her two girl cousins that are her age.
Here's what you need to make your own:
- 3 or 4 sheets of 12×12 two-sided cardstock. I used this.
- 1 sheet of fun foam
- 1 flower embellishment + brad
- one set of Basic Grey magnetic snaps
- 1 ugly glue stick
- sewing machine
I made the envelope by simply folding the sheet of fun foam in thirds and sewing up both sides. I rounded the flap and added top-stitching.
For the paper strips, I cut three sheets of cardstock at a time. First into 6" pieces and then 3/4" strips. Three sheets of cardstock will yield 90 strips of paper-chain making bliss.
note: I used a thinner piece (2 1/2 x 3) of Bo Bunny orange gingham to cover my ugly glue stick.
Attach the brad to and through the flower and flap on the envelope and then peel-n-stick the "minus" magnet to the underside. Stick the "positive" magnet underneath on the envelope itself and …
FUN and done.
