Envelope Gift Tags- ABlog Named Hero Challenge


Hello again, I'm in the middle of a creative mojo flow...and I'm going with it. I needed to make a couple of back to school gifts for a couple of my favorite peeps, and I found this challenge on the A Blog Named Hero blog. The theme is 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'. I've had this idea in my head for a while. A way to make a cheap and easy shaker card filled with fun confetti! 

If you are like me you have 45231000 envelopes that come with your monthly bills, you know, the ones that you used to use when you....wrote a check?? Remember those? I decided to recycle a couple into a set of gift tags. I used StazOn ink to stamp out my phrases, added a bunch of confetti and sequins, then folded over the top with washi tape and secured with stitching (note: sewing thru washi tape will probably get my needle all gummy and I will have to throw it away.....)



Here's how it looks with my niece's goodies! You know, the essentials- cool pens and sugar ; )

supplies: Hero Arts Stamps #1 and #2, black StazOn, KP letter stickers, washi tape #1, #2, #3, bag from Target,
