Sale-a-Brate with Mini Envelope Books

The final project from my envelope punch board class is this cute hanging envelope holder.  I have been obsessed with making a version of this with the punch board since I bought it.  I created one last year with the Sent with Love Simply Sent Kit but liked the idea of using various Sale-a-Bration products in a single fun sample. 

The envelopes are 3 x 4 and you can get 4 out of a 12 x 12 sheet since you start with a 6 x 6 square of DSP.  In this case, it's a piece of Sweet Sorbet DSP.  Follow the grids on the Envelope Punch Board to make the envelopes and layer them over each other.  The inserts are 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 so you can get 4 of them out of a 1/2 sheet of cardstock.

First thing I taught was how to make these fun fringe flowers.  In this case, I put a magnet on the back, adhered with Crystal Effects, to hold the album on the wall.  To make the flower, take a piece of designer paper, any size really, and put a strip of adhesive on the bottom. Fold over but do not score or you will have a very sharp petal on your flower instead of a loop.  Once adhered, use the fringe scissors and cut to about 1/2 inch.  Then put adhesive on the unfringe portion and roll.  This flower was a 10 x 2 piece.

I wanted to show the My Digital Studio (MDS) product as well as the stamp sets and accessories from the brochure.  In this first envelope, I used the Decorative Dots stamp from the MDS download and colored it Pistachio Pudding.  Then I printed it on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with my Banner Punch.  It's stapled on a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe.  I also did one in Crisp Cantaloupe and punched those out with the Banner Punch.  Since I didn't get the You're Lovely stamp set, I used the MDS version to cut out and layer on another piece of DSP from the Sweet Sorbet DSP and put the banners behind it.

The second envelope has a tab directly from the Banner Blast stamp set in Crisp Cantaloupe and is punched out with the Banner punch.  The little banner on the bottom is done with the MDS Decorative Dot image and it's scored twice to create an elevated banner.  The flower on it is from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.  I colored the cork with the fat tip of the Crisp Cantaloupe marker to pull it into the color combo.  Please note: If you use this cork, it's beyond sticky so where it rests is where it will stay..... :) You have been warned!

The third envelope leverages the Summer Starfruit Twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack.  The rest of the Pistachio Pudding Decorative Dots was punched out with the Decorative Label framelit and then I did the See Ya Later in Basic Black in MDS and punched that out again with a framelit.  The banner is another piece of Sweet Sorbet DSP hooked to the top of the Crisp Cantaloupe insert.
