Mailbox Packaging

So today I just wanted to show you the card I sent to our youngest son's teacher and the packaging of the Classroom Mailbox from Thursday :)  

I took a plain kraft business envelope and stamped the little school buses in rows with Memento Lady Bug ink and then the Thank you with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then added the scoring lines along the side and bottom to create a bag-a-lope, and the mailbox gift is inside.  

Isn't the card cute?  Again, I stamped this cute girl with Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics (listed below in the recipe) to match the designer paper, which I think is SU East Coast Prep.  The Nestie is Labels 17, and I've used the PTI Bookplate Impression plate for texture which I think is perfect with all those cool letters.   For accent I've added a whole row of red nailhead stickers and some pretty cotton linen ribbon.   To accent the top red layer of the card I've added a little row cut out with one of the Labels 17 Nestie shapes.  

Don'tcha love her CUTE little shoes?   

I really had such a great time making this project!  I love my craft!

Hey Christine,
What a great gift set you've created! Is there a tutorial to change an envelope into that bag? That's cool!
