May I have the Envelope please...

No, this isn't the Oscar's. It is however time for Torendi's Product Highlight! This month we'd like to give special attention  Kraft Coin Envelopes.

These babies are very affordable and easy to doll up! I have two examples to share and I'll start with a layout of my son on his first day of Preschool:

I had several small pictures that I wanted for the layout with out overcrowding so I utilized the envelopes to create some mini flip pages. Here are some details:

In side the envelopes I slipped in some memorabilia; he attempted to write his name its so cute!

The Kraft Coin Envelopes are perfect for gift card  or a gift of cash. I can't bear the thought of just handing either one of these over in a mundane package so creating a purse came to mind. Torendi has so many great papers and embellishments this was a blast to make!

I am really loving how this came out! I can't wait to find someone to give this to! I wished there were more hours in a day because I still want to create a tag book with these or fold them down the middle a stitch together for a mini album. Well that just about wraps it up.Thanks for stopping by and don't be afraid to push the envelope! Beth aka BR-T
