Seeing really cool Loaded envelopes on the web recently I decided I should make one. So Here is my St Patricks Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin.
Here are some of the supplies used in the St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope & How To make a Kiss Me Pin:
Rinea Foil – Gold
Brutus Monroe Jurassic Ink
Large Shamrock Cut on Silhouette Cameo 3
Cricut Explore Air – on Amazon
Cricut Cuts: Circle – Basic Shapes, Flower – Home Decor, Bottom of ribbon from 1st Place Ribbon – Locker Talk. Shamrock was an image I drew the Shamrock and used the Cricut software to convert it to a cut file.
Green card stock – On Amazon
Dymo Label maker with Black Label
Xyron – on Amazon
Ranger Blending Tool – on Amazon
Punch Bunch Flower Punch
McGill Stylus – on Amazon
Fun Foam – on Amazon
Aleene’s Tacky White Glue
Mini Clothes Pins: 7gypsies
Green Seam Binding – on Amazon
Cut the Shamrock Envelope with the Silhouette. For this project, I cut one with the hearts cut out in the front and cut a second Shamrock for the back. Use the Brutus Monroe Jurassic Ink and a Tim Holtz Blending tool to add color around the edges.
Glue the bottom half of the Shamrock but not up into the center just around the lower half with white glue. Don’t use tape, if you do your items will stick to the tape.
Tie a bow with green seam binding. Glue in the center of the shamrock to represent a stem.
Add St Patrick’s Day Altered Paperclips to either side of the St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope.
Pin St Patrick’s Day Lady ATC to the front of the St Patrick’s Loaded Envelope.
Fill the inside of the Shamrock Envelope with Calico Collage St Patrick’s images. Some of the images were mounted on Silhouette Lace Tags and scraps of paper.
Extra Shamrocks were placed inside a green envelope.
How to make a Kiss Me Pin:
Cut the Flower Shape and the lower part of the 1st place ribbon out of the same shade of green card stock. Use the Brutus Monroe Jurassic Ink and a Tim Holtz Blending tool to add color around the edges.
Load a lighter shade of green card stock cut the circle and the shamrock. Use the Brutus Monroe Jurassic Ink and a Tim Holtz Blending tool to add color around the edges.
Layer the items together to form a ribbon, using Aleene’s Tacky White Glue and Xyron.
Load the Dymo Label maker with Black Label and type the words: “Kiss Me”. Apply on the lower right of the shamrock flower area.
Cut a scrap piece of paper, place pin back on paper and glue with Aleene’s Tacky White Glue, add more glue and adhere to back of the ribbon.
To form the flower, from the Gold Rinea Foil punch with the Punch Bunch Flower Punch. Place the flower on the fun foam and use the McGill Stylus to shape into a cup.
Glue flower in the center of Shamrock.
Add Kiss Me Pin to the St Patrick’s Day Loaded Envelope with a Mini Clothes Pin from 7gypsies.
Have fun adding other items to fill the St Patricks Loaded Envelope. I even added stickers, some seam binding and extra pieces of paper.
