JUST POPPING BY....

Just nipping in to do a quick post in between washing and cleaning (I know on a beautiful day like today...and also on my Wedding Anniversary!!) Just started cleaning a cupboard out and then, you can't stop!! BIG MISTAKE!!
Just thought I would show you what I made for my friend ..
she loves to write letters - hates computers and can't understand why people prefer to type an email rather than write!!
So I made her a small writing set..

I used a sheet of A4 card folded it but made sure I made a small 'spine' so that it would take the bulk of the envelopes and cards!

I used some paper to cover the spine and part of the cover to strengthen it, and punched out some flowers using the SU scalloped punch and some white prima flowers in the centre and a brad to finish off.

I decorated the inside with the same paper as on the cover, but made sure I didn't stick down too tightly at the edges, otherwise there would be no give for the cards/envelopes!

I then made some cards, stamped a small design on the cards and envelopes. I popped some stamps in - posted it off and she LOVED it! (She actually wrote a thank you on one and posted it to me!)
Hope you like the idea...it makes a nice quick personal pressie!
enjoy your day!
