My first envelope creations

Today I had a few spare hours at work, I have one of those jobs where its either crazy busy or completely dead. I decided to try and make some of my own envelopes, after admiring many made by other bloggers. All I had at my disposal was a magazine so thats why their all decorated with magazine stuff. I kinda like that they all have a "theme" and can be matched with the person they get sent to.

"Interior decorating"

"Festival Fashion"


This one is just a collage of images/words I liked.

I used this guide to make them if your interested.
I went and saw Avatar last night. I really enjoyed it but am not sure if it lived up to all the hype.
Wishing you all a fantastic weekend. Were off tonight for a friends birthday, pizza and wine :-)


  1. Aw, they look awesome! I especially like the bottom one featuring Zooey. The pizza was pretty amazing, we get the same one every time and they deliver free. I think there's a Crust place in Canberra in Braddon (my parents were trying to find it when they were there but it was closed for Christmas). I think Vegemite must be a real acquired taste, I have no idea how I came to enjoy it, but I can't help but love it. My sister spreads it on things a centimetre thick!

  2. I need to get around to making my envelopes! I use to scrapbook a lot, but then it just got expensive to keep up with. So now I have TONS of scrapbooking paper and nothing to use it for!

    Did you see Avatar in 3D?! I think it would've been best if you'd seen it in 3D first. I LOVE THE MOVIE, and that special feature was amazing. :) I saw it again later in regular, and it wasn't as great. :D I can't wait for the DVD!

  3. Great job!! I've never really made any yet. I just make my own envelopes with paper and sometimes fabric.

    I loooveeee Avatar! I watched it normal and 3D and it was even more awesome in 3D! Have a really lovely weekend!x

  4. really delightful creations that will put a smile on the faces of those who's mailboxes they end up in :)

    ooh and the dessert below made me SO hungry and it's 1:30 a.m. ha i need to get to bed.

    i loved Avatar! :) it reminded me of Fern Gully.
