Our Gift Bag/Envelope DT Challenge, Invite & a Free Printable Envelope!

Hi Everyone,

Today is our Design Team Gift Bag/Envelope Challenge and I’m excited to see what everyone created from this cool DIY video I found at for turning any envelope into a gift bag with pleated sides!  Just click on each of the links below to visit each DT ladies blog and see their project. 

I came back and added this: We would love to have you join in and create a envelope-gift bag using any of our products! You can post your creation on our Facebook page and we will draw a $40.00 Gift Certificate winner this Friday, Oct 28/11
I also wanted to have a free printable for you today and decided an envelope template would be fitting. It’s posted below

Below is the free envelope template and you just need to left click it to make it as large as possible and right click the image to save it to your computer.  Then you can print your own envelopes on on white or color  8.5 x 11" paper or cardstock (personal use only please).
Your envelopes will have a decorative pattern on the inside and you can stamp and embellish the outside.  

If you have our CD and want to get really fancy, you can print on cardstock and run it through your printer again and print one of our pattern papers (imagine pastel flowers or polka dots) on the other side. None of the other DT ladies have seen this envelope, so they used envelopes they had - except for DT Member Julie Campbell who used the 3D envelope template we have on our CD #1. 

NOTE:  You don't have to use this printable envelope to participate, you can use any envelope with any of our products to make a gift bag. Post it on our Facebook Page & you will be entered to win $40 Gift Certificate.

I will be back later this week with some fabulous new samples and a preview of our new CD #2, Creating With Vintage Illustrations!

Wishing you joy & creativity
