Flirty Flowers envelope pouch


The final project of the day from my All-Day Craftathon last weekend was this clever pouch made from three standard envelopes. I found the idea on the blog of a Dutch demonstrator called Carmen Morris and adapted it for the lovely Petal Passion Designer Series Papers and Flirty Flowers stamp set.


This paper is so versatile because you can stamp on it and make it fit any colour scheme you like. It’s black and white, so we stamped extra leaves (from Petal Palette) in Lemon Lime Twist to bring the colour scheme together. 

What I forgot to photograph was the flip-down section on the left inside the pouch - this is another little pocket which is just sized perfectly for a gift card or a packet of postage stamps.


Inside the left pocket of the pouch are these cute little notecards. You’ll find these in the Spring/Summer catalogue but they fall into the “I don’t think they wanted you to see them” category, as they are pretty well hidden on page 19. So if, like me, you tend to skip the Valentine’s stuff, you’ll miss them!


In the right hand pocket is this slim notebook which is simply covered in a piece of DSP. We had to avoid any bulk on this, and on the note cards, otherwise they wouldn’t fit inside the pockets, which are simply envelopes so not particularly roomy.

It’s a fun project which can be adapted to include all kinds of goodies – hop on over to Carmen’s blog to see what she put inside hers!
