Hello everyone! I wanted to share with you some Keepsake Envelope Folders that I made this past weekend. They are very quick and easy to put together.
Basically you take 3-5 envelopes and stick them together, creating pockets for holding special things.
The fun part is decorating the front of the envelope.
There are so many pretty papers and stickers available now that most of the work is already done!
The back of the envelope.
Wrapped up with ribbon and ready to be filled.
Phillip and I are friends with a couple who are moving back to Florida for a few months and then will be heading to Uganda, Africa for three years. They will be working on translating the Bible for a small remote people group called the Ik. Before they can start on the translating though, they will need to figure out exactly what language they speak!
I wanted to give my friend a going away gift, but it had to be small and not one more thing for her to pack. I decided to give her one of the Keepsake Envelopes with hopefully some useful things tucked inside.
A small vintage hankie and a card with my address and phone number.
Various hot teas.
Lastly, a little spending money for their road trip to Florida. I suggested she share a little of it with her husband. ;0)
Thank you for looking at my Keepsake Envelopes! If you would like to make some of your own you can find the instructions at Martha Stewart.com
