Another "Velope"

Ah you know me.... how I lurves to make "Velopes" - thus far (huh? I just stepped out of a Dickens novel obviously lol) we have had the Tag-Velope and the much maligned Box-Velope (that died a death before it went to blogland lol)  Anyways... I am cheesed off!  Why? Well, because I a ruuubbish at buying pressies for difficult to buy for peeps... you know who you are... can't get you this, can't get you that yada-yada.  Well, you can't fox me, oh-ho-no!  This year I have been making Gift-Velopes... so instead of giving you money in a naff store bought gift card envelope, I shall be giving you money/giftcard/voucher in a rather stylish (even if I do say so meself) Gift-Velope.  Do you want to know how I maded it (please say yes, otherwise I shall cwy and cwy)  Well, check out Snazzy's DT blog HERE... all the instructions/measurements etc are on there because... tis my first day of my DT week there. 



That there be a sneak peek of the Gift-Velope.  I am on a roll too... I have measured out a fair few already and they just need putting together.  I had to stop myself sneaking into the bedroom and snaffling my Christmas stash box from down my side the bed... **I know, I have NO room in the Room of Stash for seasonal frivolities**  Grim is asleep - he is on stooopid early-early shifts this week and I just know he wouldn't be appreciative of being woken up by his daft wife trying to struggle with a big box of festiveness... I shall wait til the morning and get them then!  Anyways... pop over to the Snazzy blog and please do let me know whatcha fink!  Will you be making some.. or it is just me (sob)   Right, I shall away... I have itchy fingers... time for me to make more Gift-Velopes!   Thanks for looking... TTFN!

PS... no more sightings of the Panther... but there was a very suspicious smelling *ahem* squirt up the back door this morning... mmm, me-thinks he has been a-visiting.... Jeyes Fluid is a marvellous thing isn't it!

Just had a looky! Thank you Hels - how the dickens did you know I would be needing these this year? So clever of you to make a project just for me lol! Guess what I'll be making after my cards, tags and other stuff is done - there's nothing wrong with foldy bits - it's just like my love of 'stuff'! Have a fab week! Karen x

Owwww..I love this idea and you posted this just for meeee. (ok I know you really didn't) I was wanting to do something different for my grown nieces and now I know what. I won't feel so bad giving them a gift card now. Thanks Hels, for the info, the how to and the inspiration!!

Hugs,

Morning Hels, Just been over to Snazzy's for the deets and to leave a comment. You are such a clever, clever, girlie, I absolutely love, love, love your Gift-velope, and the Teresa Collins papers are so beautiful. I will definitely be trying these out, such a pretty way to give money or vouchers, so much nicer than an envelope.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Hels. How did you know i wanted these? Going to pop over and see how its made. Thanks.

I made a 7x7 folder yesterday with a spine. Put a shorter diagnal piece inside and filled it with 6 of my cards and envelopes. All prettily decorated on the outside and inside.
I'm giving it as a draw prize in the Animal Charity shop. V proud of my inventivness.

Morning Hels, ive have the dreaded squirts left by male cats hoping to attract my girl - she's bright and knows they aren't good enough for her! I wash it with vinegar they don't seem to like the smell and its clear until the smell wheres off!!

Anyway great idea for gift wallets, im popping over to have a look. Emma

Redanne said...

Been over, seen it, love it! Thanks for the details too, such a great idea.

Pepper is supposed to work to keep them away but you need to keep adding it as wind and rain blow and wash it away.......

Hugs, Anne x

A little squirt up the back door??? crumbs. If our Toby had been here still you could have borrowed him. He attacked every cat he could find, even jumped straight through a neighbours window, beat up her cat and then came out, proud as punch, through their front door. Would have to protect AlfieCat first though.

they are really cool Hels, am tempted to make some, but will have to call them git-velopes as am too mean/poor to fill them except with empty promises, or very thin peices of chocolate.x

Brilliant idea, thank you for the instructions - I may have a go xx
