MMSC47, A Sachet Gift Box

Today I will show you something different, we have been featuring Priscillastyles thick style envelopes this month at Midnight Madness, our monthly sponsor, but you can use these envelopes for something other than a card.  I used a Sachet of Vanilla and Lavender but anything that is around that size would work also.  Boy, my craft room has been smelling heavenly this week!! Priscilla is also our weekly sponsor as well, for that gift she will be giving away a 6 x 6 envelope kit so you will have an envelope template for your thicker cards.
 I did some lacing around the envelope, weaving it in and out to give it a very feminine feel to the gift, after all it is a Sachet, you can give it a go with whatever fits your project or theme.

It is best to do all your work on your envelope before you adhere the flaps to one another.  I happen to be lacing this envelope as I was watching HGTV and I have got to say I had my Kitties very interested in it!!

I want to share this with you all today ,this is my last Midnight Madness Sketch card as a Design Team member. Due to personal reasons I decided to step down.   I will miss my Design team sisters beyond measure but I hope to continue to see them in blogland.  I want to assure you I will be keep making cards and will be blogging them and other topics as I can.   Thank you all so much, Blessings to you and yours, Jane
