Who knew, collaged envelopes!

The other day, I shared one of the envelopes I made for a upcoming swap, well, here's another one.......

IMG_0190Yes, there is an envelope under there.....somewhere!

This is a white, birthday card size envelope that I covered with pink satin, some sheet music, some homemade paper, ribbon and lace.  Notice the pocket full of vintage calling cards, a 1893 calendar and an advertising card.

IMG_0189And then, there is the back side..................

IMG_0191I know, you still can't see the envelope.  I covered the back side 'cause I didn't like how the top stitching looked.  BUT, I added an envelope.....and it contains.......

IMG_0192This little card made with cotton batting and denim check fabric and a cute little pre-made piece........

IMG_0193That says "Dare to be yourself"! 

The idea is that these pages will be bound, in some fashion, and made into a book.  They are so darn fun to make......I'm having a "envie-ball".  Hope you enjoy,too.    

Join me at Met Monday on Between Naps on the Porch.
