Hi swappers!

For this swap you'll be creating 2 BOHO envelopes for your partner using the tutorial found HERE

Since these are highly embellished they are meant to be used in your junk journals instead of mailing.

Your finished envelopes should measure around 4"x6"--a bit smaller would be fine.

Everyone's creations will be different, but let's all agree to include:

  • some fabric

  • some stitching (hand or machine)

  • some rubber stamping

  • some paper scraps

  • some embellishments (buttons, etc)

Oddbird uses some fantastically beautiful fabric scraps. It's like she bought scraps from a sari factory! If you don't have fantastically beautiful scraps, don't worry. Use what you have on hand.

Here's a great tip for scoring some small fabric scraps: at some fabric stores (I go to Joann), they'll have a little pocket with scraps on each role of upholstery material. Some of these are very high end and beautiful. Great way to get fabric snippits and they're free for the taking.

So . . . 2 embellished BOHO envies to 1 partner.

Hope this puts you in a Bohemian mood!

Oh, envelopes! Loved the use of the translucent fabric. Maybe we could use scarves for this effect?

Yes! Perfect idea and it hadn't occurred to me. I was lucky enough to find some sari fabric at the thrift store recently but it's very deep purple and only one color ;+(
