Sweet Treat Thursday -- Recycling !!

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!
Hi everyone,

Ever wandered what to do with all those empty envelopes we receive with our bills ??? Wander no more, I got something just for you and it's way cuter them tossing them in the recycling bin. It's my variation of something that as been running around for quite some time now.... Did you guess??

1) Find a treat that would fit in the enveloppe, and after closing it (without the treat inside !!) cut it to about the same lenght of your treat.

2) Adhere patterned paper (no cardsotock otherwise it becomes too thick for the next step) and run throught your paper crimper.

3) Decorate the other part of the envelope

4) Fill


5) Close and give

(dsp is strawberry lemonade, stamps are from just perfect alphabet and very thanful)


Have a nice stampin' day
