Altered Shower Cap Packaging


For this week's "Creative Expressions DT piece" I have decided to alter an envelope that I bought back from Ragdale. This first picture is almost a "before" picture...it's actually my first attempt which ended up as a reject. The card was quite shiny and hence a bit slippy so my stamping was a bit off, I was a bit more carefull second time round!

It did have a shower cap in it but I have decided to turn it into something special...



It would now be perfect for a gift card/token. The stamps I used are from the JustRite Bon Voyage set and the JustRite Paris set. When I looked at the Bon voyage stamps on the website I saw the Paris set and thought that they would work really well together.

I have used both stamp sets to decorate this envelope.


This project seems to fit with the following Challenges:

"Divas by Design - anything goes"

"Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes"

"Southern Girls - Ribbon Madness"

"Bloggers JFF - Anthing but a card"

"Challenge up Your Life - Packaging/box"

Creative use of packaging.
This would be so beautiful for a Bride or Bridesmaid with a gift tucked inside.
Very special.

Such a clever idea! I love how recycling has made such a throw away item into something so beautifully elegant! Fab-u-lous x

The end result is just beautiful. It's fun to see something that could be recycled and have our ideas come to life. Cheers, Lisa

Love the colours on this piece and your bow detail is gorgeous. The flower on my blog today was made from a floral trim that I simply rolled to create my flower. Hope that helps. Take care. Tracy x
