Making Cookie Envelope



Hello!  Today I have something different...an envelope for a cookie.  I was inspired to make this after seeing Cindy's post and challenge for Day 8 challenge in Power Poppy's 12 Days of Challenge for Christmas.  I downloaded her templates and printed on Kraft CS.  I also created my pattern design with Power Poppy Hollyberries digital stamp using Photoshop Elements .  I colored in the berries using tools in Photoshop.  I was going to leave the leaves uncolored but decided to color with a Green Pencils after I cut out the envelope.  I used some String closures from my stash (purchased several of these at a closeout sale a few years ago) and colored the string red with a Copic marker.  For the tag, I used a Vanilla one from my stash and stamped with sentiment from Power Poppy Poinsettia set and inked the edges.  Added some fussy cut Holly and Berries from the printed design.  After viewing the picture, I think the tag is too large and I will downsize the next ones I make.
Now, just to make some  cookies and fill more envelopes.
Note: I first tried to stamp and emboss images directly on the Kraft paper but could not get it to look like I wanted.  That is when I resorted to printing the design and it will be really easy to make several wrappers.

I love how having the colours on kraft gives an almost vintage feel to this lovely project Theresa! The matching tag was the perfect way to finish it off. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

These are super cute Theresa! The effect of the images on kraft is really soft and pretty. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink.
