Baby Girl Loaded Envelope

1 more Loaded Envelope to share today, 
this time for baby girl
I changed the envelope design
as I wasn't happy thing were getting crushed in the box style.

Loaded Envelope
Bucket style which as a rounded envelope
this one holds a lot more
I didn't give this one side seams 
instead I just curved the front folds and didn't join them as tight.
I had to make a concertina base, 
so that it expanded to fit the new shape.

Cute little dressed teddy in the one.

I added 2 handmade paper and lace dresses

Back view of the envelope 
which has a pocket for even more goodies

Everything from the front pocket.
handmade toppers, and tags, some baby verses and greetings which are matted and layered with a selection of of Baby die-cuts, pre-cut images, bag of baby tags. bag of lace, bag of ribbon, flowers and bag of embellishments, enough to make about 20 cards, with 2 baby pleated pin wheels, 
a little dress teddy, and 2 handmade paper and lace baby dresses.
