My creative space

the envelope project


There has been little creativity in our place this week - except in the pursuit of new cold remedies (none have actually worked mind you)...
So I reached Thursday morning, and spent a little while wistfully looking at the creative space earlybirds, longing to join in, when I came up with an idea I might actually manage - only it's not my idea, it's Pip's...
So the mini blogger and I set to work - we found an old paper bag we'd decorated a while ago, and cut out an envelope shape (and yes those are sockless, shoeless legs on this cold day - just the way she likes it apparently!), coated the paper with Mod Podge for a little weather protection,
then folded it up into an envelope (I do hope Australia Post accept wonky misshapen envelopes...).

We then set to work on some handmade items for inside the envelope - sticking with the envelope theme, we cut up the insides of some envelopes into little clouds and raindrops...

and made a fun little picture with a few spare pieces. Now I'm off to search for some other little things to fit inside.
