"Belli Challenge" - Envelopes

I made this "Bad-a-lope" from a large envelope. I used the Textured Jumbo Wheel in More Mustard and the words from Wild About You were stamped in Chocolate Chip. I used Deckle Edge Scissors at the top of the bag and sponged it. I used Natural Hemp to close the bag. These bags are easy to do, you just seal the envelope, cut off the end that you want to use for you opening, fold the sides and the bottom in about an inch and unfold (just to make a crease). Then open the bag and fold the bottom in (like gift wrap). You will need to use some adhesive to hold the folds at the bottom.

Punches for lion - Head - 1-1/4" Circle, Cheeks - 1/2" Circle, Nose & Ears - 1/4" Circle, Eyes - Double Circle
Mane - Scallop Punch, Body - 1-3/8" Circle, Back Legs - Large Oval (cut in half)
Front Legs - Small Oval (cut in half), End of Tail - Boho Blossoms

This is adorable!! I did the bag-a-lope as well but I wish I would've had a smaller envelope. Great job!
