A birthday gift and card ...

t's a colleague's birthday tomorrow

She really loves her veg/fruit garden and making pickles/chutney's and jam's with the things she grows.With that in mind I decided to get a few little gift items together for her and pop them into a kilner jar that she can use afterwards. 

The colour scheme was based on the colours in the gardening gloves that I purchased first, I then found a packet of sweet pea seeds in similar colours along with some mini bath bombs and some hand cream from my favourite spa, 

I then realised that one of my Graphic 45  12x 12 sheets ((Perfect Petals from the Sweet Sentiments collection) was also in similar colours ... so hey presto a matching card, lined envelope  and gift tag! Hope she likes it as much as I enjoyed putting it all together! Happy Crafting xx

How to line an envelope

Cut a piece of paper just slightly narrower than the width of your envelope, so that you can easily slip it inside

                  Turn the envelope over with the paper in it and draw around the envelope flap.

Cut along the line you have drawn and then remove a small amount from the bottom of the paper.                                    (Approximately the width of the glue strip on the envelope

Slip the paper back into the envelope and glue or tape into place.
(I generally only glue the top section to the flap,)

And there you have it - a lined envelope !
