3D35 Challenge - Elegant Envelopes

Turn an ordinary envelope into a lovely little gift package with the focal point being a sweet floral embellishment made out of paper towels!!! Yes, paper towels! A little Glimmer Mist and some hand tearing is all it takes to create these charming flowers. My envelope samples are 6x6 which can be easily re-worked for any size envelope.
As far as the envelope goes, simply cover the flap with a rectangle layer and then add interesting rows of pattern paper, lace trims, punched borders, etc. The body of the envie is just a larger cut panel. The ribbon acts as a slider and holds the flap closed.
Think about this same idea for handled bags and gift boxes! They'll love the packaging so much, they won't want to open the gift!
Be sure to tag your photos 3d35 for the album.
