Virginia + envelope seals = easy metallic embellishment!

Virginia + envelope seals = easy metallic embellishment!

September greetings!  A few weeks ago my daughter and I headed to Staples for a little back-to-school shopping.  As a little girl, I use to love starting the school year armed with a new pencil case, crisp sharpened pencils, clean erasers and new binders.  Even today as a scrapbooker I love going into an office supply store looking at ways to used everyday items in my paper crafting.

As Anna was checking out the latest pencil case patterns and locker accessories,  I naturally found myself in the stationary aisle and came upon some envelope seals.  With the trend lately for metallic finishes I thought these silver rimmed seals would be perfect as background for cards and pages.

If you are needing to make some cards assembly-line method these are fantastic,  just peel and stick-how simple is that!



The seals add just a bit of sheen and make for pretty accents to highlight gems or enamel dots.  





Hope this inspires you to look into your office drawer desk for some papercrafing inspiration!

Have a wonderful day!

    I enjoy going into Staples almost as much as I do going into Michael’s or other craft stores!! I am a kid in a candy store! They really do have a lot of great products to use on my crafty adventures and pretty good prices usually!!!
    Thanks for sharing about the metallic seals!! Might have to get into Staples to check them out soon!
