Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Make It Sparkle !

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Die Crazy Challenge !

Can you believe there are only 2 more sleeps until Christmas Day ?  Are you ready ?  Are you
excited ?  I am both ! We had a marathon wrapping session last night and I believe its all done (I say "believe" as we always find extras hidden away in a wardrobe !!).

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and hope you have a fabulous time !

It's Wednesday and 

Yes, we have a new challenge over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge !

The theme this week is 

Make it Sparkle !

The Design Team are this week showcasing Technique Tuesday products.

For this week's challenge, as always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a fabulous $50 voucher for the Simon Says Stamp Store!

I had a number of money envelopes to make this year for Christmas birthdays as well as Christmas.  I thought a fun idea would be to use the Technique Tuesdays "Pull Strip" die.  I made them quite small as I also wanted to make envelopes to go with them.  If you are like me, you will have oodles of 6x6 paper hanging around which is never used !  I wanted to be able to make envelopes from 6x6 patterned papers !

Here is how I made them :

Cut a piece of card and patterned paper both 3" x 4".

Die cut the "pull strip" on the patterned paper and stamp using the border stamps (I added a strip of plain card to my patterned paper so you can see the pull strip and wording easily !!)

Put foam tape all around the edge of your piece of card and place your money in the centre (don't forget to do this as you can't add it later !!).

Add your piece of patterned paper over the top and decorate.

These were so quick and easy to make and such fun !

I used my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board for some fun envelopes.

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !
