Made with the Xcut Mini Envelope Die Set, these teeny tiny babies are great for adding mini pockets to your planners (you could even make fully functional envelope paperclips), sending little (likely, one-word) notes, or make an envelope booklet with tiny trinkets in each. Just about anything you could use an envelope for.
We all had a long weekend and you can bet our idea of fun and relaxation was whipping out a small bunch of sample invites for another upcoming Kaeratana bride, all while the gentlemen were watching the toddler.
