Altered scallop gift card/treat envelope for the Creatively-Green blog hop!

Are you ready for some super sweet fun!
Today is the second day in the Creatively-Green Valentine's Blog Hop!!! I get to share a fun challenge- an altered scallop gift card/treat envelope to make for those you love. I have 2 different treat envelopes for you. One that's made with cardstock and one made with a recycled postcard. Gotta have the green aspect even if Valentine's Day is primarily about the colors red and pink. ;-)
This is a quick and fun little project for you to recreate in under ten minutes.





Here's what it looks like open:

I used Creatively-Green's 100% recycled Red Devil cardstock which is deep red with a great texture. The Chambray Berry ribbon is also recycled, and you cut it, shred it, fold it, etc. It's also made in the USA.




1. Trace the template on cardstock and cut out. See below for template.

2. Fold the edges along dotted lines and use glue dots on each side of the lower scallop to attach.

3. Cut a sentiment /image with pinking shears from a piece of pattern paper and attach with pop dots to the center.

4. Add a piece of ribbon folded in half to right side with a button.

5. Use glue pen to add sugar glitter.

6. Attach a velcro closure.

and you are done!


The next example is suited for a male without the all the glitter and pink. I used a recycled postcard to make the holder and added a few vintage items from the Creatively-Green store.








Here's the postcard before:




Postcard with the template drawn on the back:


Postcard cut out:




Now all you have to do is fold the edges and decorate as you want. I used a vintage Dennison label stamped with a sentiment. I cut a heart from a bill wrapper and tore a sliver of a book page and then I added a square shaped brad . For the closure, I used 2 brads and a piece of floss. Punch your holes for the brads and wrap a piece of floss around to make closure.



I have included the template for this envelope for all to use. Please for free to create away using this template and I hope you will share with me what you make. :-)



Happy Valentine's Day!
