Birthday Loaded Envelope

Pinterest is a little obsession of mine lately and one thing I found recently were 'Loaded envelopes'.  I am not sure when these started to become populate or exactly what there initial purpose was but here is my take on a loaded envelope.

This is a loaded envelope for a friends birthday. 

First the main card:
The inside has a tag portion for the sentiment. 
And as with most of my cards I have not actually written in it so she can reuse.   
 
Here is what is actually in the envelope:
 
So first up are the tags.  There are 4,  each have a 'To you,  from me' stamp on the back.
 
Then there are 3 small cards, with envelopes.

Than a 'Thank you' card with envelope.
The actual envelope has three sections, 
 which allow you to tuck a load of goodies for the receiver.

And here is the final envelope all wrap for gifting.

You will certainly see more of these coming from me. 
Such a great way to use your stash and such a great little gift pack.

I have shared my creation with:


Allsorts challenge - Happy birthday challenge
Crafty Catzw Weekly Challenge - ATG with a twist:  2 layers

Thanks for the inspiration.

Happy crafting.
