Handmade Envelopes with a Twist

This was for a swap on Swap-Bot. The goal was to create a series of 5 or more handmade envelopes of descending size. Each envelope contained a slightly smaller envelope.

The smallest envelope contained a small gift. In this case, I enclosed a foreign coin and stamp - for the recipient's son who collects foreign coins.

Five of the evelopes were made from wallpaper that was in a wallpaper sample book. The other two envelopes were made from scrapbooking paper.

This Christmas things are going to be a bit tight. So, I've been thinking about different ways to creatively package smaller gifts.

My daughters saw me making these envelopes and both thought it was "really cool!" Good...because at least one of the gifts that each of them receives this year will be packaged this way.
