Just Dandy Studio: Petal Envelopes

Kraft Envelope

Die cut Just Dandy Studio wrapping paper with a twig die, which adds just a bit of color.  Love how it turned out!

Polka Dot Envelope

Love me some polka dots!  To make the shredded bow, cut narrow pieces of wrapping paper, gather, wrap with twine in the center, and curl the paper with the edge of a scissors.

The tag is a Just Dandy Studio sticker adhered to a square scrap of white cardstock with the corners rounded.  Love how everything matches.

Balloon Envelope

The balloon envelope is made with Just Dandy Studio wrapping paper. The belly band is a piece of striped Just Dandy Studio wrapping paper trimmed and placed under a vellum strip.  Another Just Dandy Studio sticker finishes off the band.

 Making a Petal Envelope

Google petal envelope and you'll find many ways.  I die cut 4 circles, scored a line down the center of each, folded, and then opened each circle.  I then adhered in an over under pattern.  So easy, as long as the circles are adhered properly.  I used the corner of a Scor-Buddy to align the circles to make sure I adhered them with a perfect right angle.  

There is a square piece of cardstock inside each envelope that is the same size as the diameter of one of the circles -- 4.25 inches.  That square piece finishes the inside and is a spot for a gift card, greeting, or even small jewelry.
