This week's Belli Challenge is to create something using envelopes. I made some cocoa holders with a couple of regular business sized envelopes. It is quick and easy - seal the envelope, cut it in half, stamp your background (if you wish), and crimp just the bottom envelope. Don't crimp the upper half of the envelope.
You can go crazy with any kind of images to go on the top (outer) half of the envelope. I kept mine simple so I can slide the bottom crimped half up inside without it catching on brads or eyelets or ribbons. These are fun! Try one!
When you upload your envelope challenge to SCS, please use keyword CBC25 . If you need more inspiration, check out these blogs:
