Anyhow I was very excited to make this Loaded Envelope as I have made others before. Although I must say that I took such a liking to this one a little more because I used that beautiful blinged out flower in the center as my focal point! Not only that but I'm glad that she likes purple cuz this one was a beautiful color of purple. It wasn't too bright and I found the perfect papers to go with it!
I first began by using a tutorial that I've used before as my base. A fellow crafter and youtuber did this tutorial and I think its super easy! Click here to view this tutorial! I then decided to use some Prima papers, I used some from Fairy Belle and from Princess collection. I thought they went very well with the flower in the center that came from my guest dt pkg from Esme, the owner of Crafty Me Shop on Facebook. I used also some bling leaves from Prima. I added white pearl sprays with the fabric flower. I tried making a paper Rosette and while it was super easy, I didn't like that it stayed a little lopsided lol, I used cookie sticks instead of paper straws because I felt they were way more sturdy than paper straws. I just wrapped some thin , dainty laces around them using Fabritac adhesive. You can find these @ Michaels or any other craft shop, click here to view what they look like. They come in a variety of sizes and quanities. I hope you will give these a try sometime!!
I then added a pocket of mesh/lace trim from my stash on the back and front. I adhered pearl trim around the entire back of the envelope. I adhered the same pearl trim on the front in certain areas as well. On the sides I used some beautiful pink trim from Crafty Me shop and in the center of that I added some tiny rosette with pearl trim from my stash.
I used some Lindy's Magicals to color the two chipboard pieces that I had from FabScraps, I gessoed them first then brushed on the magicals, Love that color! It matched the flower perfect!! Then I just made a small altered paper clip with my Martha Stewart butterfly punch, I layered it, added mod podge for sturdiness and stickles, rinestone in the center too. Then added tags from the Prima paper collections with some butterfly paper clips. On the back I added a white fan with a beautiful cameo in the center for added decor. Plus it would hold up my paper rosette better. Lastly I added the beautiful fabric flower that I had recieved on my guest dt kit from Flair By Me, I just added hot glue to ahere it to the cookie stick, then just added some pearl garland . I also made a tag to go inside the envelope along with the wand. I was gonna include some goodies inside like she did with mine but they didn't fit very well so decided to pack them separate. I do hope that she likes it!!
