Hello! It’s a lovely bright day here, I hope you are experiencing the same wherever you are.
I have a new pack of papers for you today which is a set of 10 Pastel Ginghams and I chose the purple gingham paper for my DVD envelope today. I have done some experimenting with printing these papers and if you leave your printer settings to a text & copy paper setting they will come out with a lovely subtle and pale shade but if you change your printer settings to an image setting it will come out a shade darker which I did here.
There is a video showing how I make my cd/dvd envelopes and the Template I use. I used a 8 x 1 1/8 inch strip of co-ordinting purple card stock wrapped around the filled envelope then stuck with tape to make my belly band. I tied a bow in some white twill over it and added a little tag made from spellbinders petite ovals and an eyelet which is threaded through my bow with some ribbon. I think it makes sending a disc to someone a little bit more special.
