Begelopes - inspired by Joanne for Paperartsy

Hi, wasn't sure I was going to get time to join in with the Paperartsy challenge (again!) this week, but just managed it - Joanne has been making some fabulous projects this week to spice up the money-giving type of gifts - just what I need!

so I combined the gingham triangle pack with the bagelope idea and came up with this very badly ginghamed envelope!

 All instructions are on Joanne's articles on the Paperartsy blog. Now, where's my purse to put the money in...

 I used stamps from the Nut and Meg 8 plate.
This was great fun - not sure about my very wonky lines though! Don't think the brush was the right one (I used a round one, think I should have used a flat one..)
Entering it for the Paperartsy challenge here

Right, I am meant to be out doing the last (hopefully) of my shopping...

They turned out great, nicely finished off with the tags. The recipients are going to be more than happy.

Well done you for joining in this week! I am defeated, time's winged chariot has passed me or run me over or something this week! Love the labels and the shabby chic look of these. JW had some fab ideas this time - wish I could have played too. Never mind. Julie Ann xx

I love the wonky lines, they give the bagelopes such a fun, fresh, spontaneous look. Cute stamps too!
