Hello again, SMS fans! It’s Sarah on the blog today with a happy mail thank you card! I recently received an amazing happy mail all the way from Australia and wanted to send a fun-filled thank you in return! So, I grabbed a few supplies from my stash and a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop and got started. Here it is:
The recipient loves Christmas an I had a lot of stuff leftover from my December Daily last year. This was the perfect opportunity to use some of it up. I had papers from the Ashley G. collection and Basic Grey Juniper Berry. Also, ephemera from Elle’s Studio and Basic Grey.
I started out by making a simple 3 envelope flip book. I cut papers down to size to fit the envelopes, both outside and inside. I filled each one with goodies from my stash and from the SMS shop! Here you can see that I filled it with a few Mini Glassine Bags, washi samples and Rockin’ Red Stars sequins. I also made a flip element out of an old acetate 3×4 card from Pinkfresh Studio!
I filled this one with ephemera, Gold Foil Doilies and acetate pieces. I embellished with some Cork Stars, enamel dots, gems and pearls.
This pocket I filled with acetate 3×4 cards, White Lace Doilies and some of the Aqua Marine Dream Sequin Mix.
I decorated the back of the flip book in a similar manner to the front. I used a large die cut glitter snowflake from Pebbles and the “celebrate” sticker also from Pebbles. I used my typewriter to make my own tiny word stickers!
I also made a fun little goodie bag filled with extras that were too big to fit in the flip book. I used a Medium Glassine Bag and filled it full. I stapled it shut with my tiny attacher and adhered a Gold Foil Doily with my E-Z Runner Grand. I embellished with a kraft tag, a glitter snowflake, and wood veneer. I also added some sparkle to the entire project with some of the Pinky Pie Pinks Sequin Mix. I just glued them on with some Tombow Mono Multiglue!
I hope you have enjoyed this happy mail thank you flip book as much as I enjoyed making it! Look for more from me on the blog next week!
