Created by (my) Hand!

CBH has Mother’s Day as its theme this week. Check out my altered spoons on Ten Two studios and if you leave me a comment, you’ll be entered into the Daily Eye Candy Draw to win a 6-month subscription to the Monthly Muse – full of tips, images and how-tos. This Daily Giveaway is running till May 10th – get in there!

Here’s an accordion-fold Seed Packet Wallet I made for MIL. She’s an avid gardener (89 this year!) and I thought these manila envelopes were the perfect size for her seeds. The images are from the Faux Postage collections HERE.




I made this wallet from a single 12″x4″ pieces of scrapbooking cardstock – light enough to fold nicely, but strong enough to carry the weight of the envelopes (IYSWIM)… I measure the envelopes and took it from there. I had the ‘flowery ribbon’ which went well with the faux postage images and the Cuttlebug folder I used.

Right – I’m off to unpack more supplies and source my Class supplies for the online class I’m taking later this month… it’s so exciting!! 😉
