Today is the day we announce the winner in our “Altered Envelope” contest! Firstly, thank you to our contest sponsors: Cocoa Daisy, Scrapbook Bakery and Scrapbooking and Wedding Supplies! Also, thank you to everyone who took the time to create a project and send it in to us. Take a look at the gallery to see all the creative entries we received.
Ok! So, our winner is…. (scroll down for honourable mentions)
Diane Reeves for her envelope purse! Diane turned a simple envelope sleeve from her photo developing store into a little purse, complete with a ribbon for a handle and ruffled trim. We were impressed with her ingenuity on this project. Such a creative idea with so many possibilities. I can just imagine making some of these for holiday gifts, maybe with a mini album inside.
We will be contacting you via email, Diane, for your mailing address in order to send out your prize as well as to arrange a spotlight interview.
More photos of Diane’s winning project can be seen below. As well, you can see Diane’s other entry here of a canvas project using the inside of an airmail envelope as part of the diamond design.
Honourable Mentions (in no particular order):
Sybille Aschoff‘s clever idea in creating an envelope and turning it into a simple mini book. Sybille tells us the front title, “Mein Liebsten,” means “My Dearest” in English and refers to her children. When the envelope is opened up completely, it suddenly becomes a mini book featuring her children, perfect to fit into her purse.
Brooke Campbell‘s artsy-looking altered packing envelope. Brooke used a bubble envelope, printed felt wings and flower from the Etsy shop Tattered Tags, a Scarlett Lime stamp, and Making Memories buttons.
Anke Humpert‘s envelope advent calendar. Anke tells us that in Germany they celebrate Christmas on December 24th, so that is why there are 24 envelopes rather than 25.
Beatriz Souza‘s artsy altered envelope. We’re not sure on the technique Beatriz used to created her envelope, but it looks as though it involved lots of layers of fabrics, papers and paint to create the texture.
Trish Widell‘s pretty altered envelope. Who can resist the gorgeous butterfly on the front with the 3D effect the wings add to the project.
Thank you again to everyone for sending in their wonderful entries! You can see more photos of the projects in the contest gallery here.
