Last EPD Project

Hello, Crafters.
I hope today's weather is a one-off and not set to stay for the weekend! 

Only gardens and ducks appreciate this amount of rain - mind you, good reason for staying in my studio!

This money envelope I made using the Envelope Punch Board is the final project in my week 7 challenge. 

I hope you've enjoyed seeing these projects as much as I have enjoyed making them. 
I'm using the Tangelo Twist (orange) envelope as my 3D project in my classes tomorrow. 

Inside is a DIY Bow Maker and two pieces of ribbon. 

I was inspired by a swap I received from Pauline Barnfather at Team Training at the beginning of the month - thanks Pauline, the bow maker is a brilliant idea!

The colours I have used are the 2014 - 2016 In Colours and the Designer Series Paper is from the Designer Series Paper Stack that was available at that time. 

I don't know for sure, but I would imagine if this product is ordered now, SU would send the latest designs. 

I must try and find out. 

The colours are Mossy Meadow (green), Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey (yellow), Blackberry Bliss (deep purple) and Lost Lagoon (dusky greeny/blue).

The stamp set I used for the bird on the branch is retired. 

The other stamps sets are Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Papillon Potpourri and Sprinkles of Life.

Although these are money bags, there are so many other ideas they could be used for. 

My five ideas here are a gift card, golf tees, teabag, bow maker and card to attach jewellery to (like the box insert I posted here yesterday). 

Another couple of ideas are chocolates, sewing kit, shower cap, small toiletries, money - the possibilities are endless.

It's now time to start thinking about a challenge for week 8!

Do you have any ideas?

If you do, please make a note in the comments box below or email me at - I'd love to hear from you.

In the meantime, I hope you have a great weekend.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
