Altered envelopes how-to.


As promised, I'm dropping in this morning to share with you the how-to on the altered envelopes I created for this week's Just Two Midwest Girls challenge.  (In case you missed it, here is the link: Be My Valentine!)  These little cutie envies are from Maya Road and about 10 came in a package.  I've had them for quite a bit of time and have probably held onto them for so long because they're so cute and I don't want to give them away.  haha!
