Tea and Chocolate

 Good morning!  Happy Wednesday to ya!!  I have a fun little project to share with you today that was inspired by one that Nancy, my Stampin' Up! demonstrator made, and she was kind enough to share the instructions she found for this project from Pink Buckaroo Designs.  This was such a fun project, and I can't wait to make more of these!

 Here's a look at the inside of the wallet.  There are three envelopes for holding tea, chocolate, or even a gift card or cash.  I did 6 of these with various sentiments, and left room for a hand written note.  I think this would be the perfect little gift item to brighten someone's day.



The paper that I used for these was actually an old book.  What a wonderful way to recycle!!  I wrinkled it up really good, and gave it a good distressing with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  The flaps of the envelope, and the envelope in the center also have distressed book pages on them.  The sparkly die cut on the front is the Top Note die from Stampin' Up!, and the envelopes are the Scalloped Envelope die, which is also from Stampin' Up!.  The Field Flowers stamp set that I used is another one of my Stampin' Up! goodies.

 Thanks for stopping by today!  I wish you many happy blessings and happy stamping, too!
