Happy everything-Halloween month!  I'm so excited that one of my favorite months is finally here.  To go along with this month is one of my favorite things to make: happy mail!

I started with this cute, clear cosmetic bag (6.5"X4") that I found at The Dollar Tree and crafted items to fit neatly inside.

To the zipper pull I attached a shower-curtain ring that holds a spool of washi tape and a package of braddies.

Next up is this sweet little mini album!  To create this I followed the ingredients below:
12X12 sheet of paper scored at 3", 6" and 9"; turn the paper and repeat the scores again.
Next I cut the 3" and 9" vertical lines just up to the 3" horizontal lines.  To assemble the pages, I folded the pages and attached the panels to the one next to it.  The first panel and last panel will be single pages that you can attach together at the end of the process.
After decorating the cover and the inside pages with a swatch of paper, I kept the inside embellishments to a minimum so that it could still be folded.

Stickers, sprinkles, die-cuts and clips are perfect additions for the tiny-mini!
Lastly I made up an ensemble of bitty embellishments and a layered button sampler.

I started with some of the punch-out tags and then layered on the die-cut tickets, stickers, doodle pops clips and sprinkles!  For the buttons, I used a 3D adhesive dot to attach enamel sprinkles to the centers of the buttons.  Removable dots were used to add the buttons to the cute tent die-cut.
Now isn't that sweet!  All of those yummy colors will make your pen pal drool :)

Thank you for joining us today!
