Piece it together!

Do you know how much fun it is to Paper Piece!? The first time I tried this technique was preparing for last nights class. It is so much fun!!! And easier than I expected! I made a flap card using the template in resources from SCS. It is a great tutorial by Rose Ann. Instead of using a magnet closure I used velcro. And on the inside used 3 mini 3x3 envelopes to tuck whatever inside. Money, gift card, note, picture(s)... One of my club members mentioned a tea bag! There are a lot of things you could put in there! I also looped the ribbon through and tied a knot at the top.

Here is the recipe:
Stamp Set: Pun Fun and the coordinating wheel Sweet Stars.
CS: Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink, WWhite and Spring Fling DSP
Accessories: Punches (non SU), SU Square Punch, Paper Snips, tool kit, Pink grosgrain ribbon, 3x3 envelopes.
All © Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

You could put inspirational verses in the envelopes...
You could also decorate the top envy slightly. I took my cards from Fab 5 to work and everyone oohed and aahed! Just as they should have! Thanks for all you do for your "FAB 5"!
