In the Bee a Brit Stingy we are doing a Christmas envelope swap. The brief was to create an envelope and add a few little 'bits' before sending it to our partner.
I decided to go rustic and made this little envelope from linen and the inside (not seen in the photos) is a green Christmas print. I popped this in the post today so my partner should be getting this through the letterbox later this week (well we are a Stingy Bee and only use second class postage!).

I had a surprise when this envelope dropped through the letterbox. Sheila has shown the envelope on her blog and I didn't get a whiff that it was for me. It is gorgeous, and the letter with the snowman on it, is really fun.

I know that I will be using that lovely envelope for storing other things once the New Year comes. I think that the envelope I made is much more amateurish, so I am sorry partner.
My Younger Son saw me making my envelope and has commissioned me to make one for one of his friend's birthday… now that is a challenge!
