THE POST MADE IT

Now that Angela has received her gift from me, I can show you what I sent her. Because she has sent me some amazing gifts I had to make something special and 'different' for her. So I designed two different things for her to have. Hopefully she can make use of both. They were fun to make....

They went into this old box I found,
 for posting so they didn't get damaged...



First I made a little envelope style purse,
this is it closed, front view...

open view...


then I made a box from fabric postcards for Angela to store
her fabric postcards, this is the front...
all Batiks as I know Angela loves them

other side...

inside view...


Also, I enclosed her Postcard for January,
if you remember we had snow snow and yet more snow;
so I did a tongue in cheek card...
Hope you can see the writing...


Glad it arrived for you Angela, thanks for letting me know...
Enjoy

Hi
I saw this envelope purse when I came to your blog for the OWOH giveaway and really liked it. Does this style have a name because I'd like to know more about it. Thank you.
