Happy Candy Cane Season!

Hi all! Sorry this is late!!  I have my Fun Friday project for you today!  This month our theme is Gifts and Giving.   Here’s a little envelope I designed to hold a gift card and little message to the recipient:

This is Merry Mouse Candy Cane – isn’t he just the cutest?!  The whole thing was colored with copics except for the bow which I paper pieced.

Here’s a shot of the back closure – none of the flaps are glued so the whole thing can open:

I designed the whole thing in Make-The-Cut – it even cuts the little circles with holes for the string closure.  I used some Trendy Twine to hold it together.  The envelope and circles are cut from 1 piece of double-sided 6x6 paper.  I even had some left over for the paper piecing on the front!

And here’s how it looks open:

You can write a little message in there and a gift card fits in perfectly!  I hope you like it!  And be sure to check out the YNS Blog for more Fun!  TFL!

P.S. This is also for Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes.
