About 6 years ago I started noticing the different colours and patterns inside the envelopes and decided to collect them.
In the beginning they were only blue and there were maybe 6 or 7 different patterns.
Now I am amazed at the variety in colours and patterns that are around.
This month it was my turn to choose the theme for our small groups ATC swap and I felt it was time to use my envelopes.
The challenge for March is to make the background for the ATC's out of the inside of the envelopes.
When I checked my stash I found that I had 50 different designs/colours and I thought I would use a different colour for each ATC.
I cut 3 strips in each colourway in 3 different patterns and made the backgrounds--now I have to embellish them.
Here are a few of the black patterned ones--
These ones are lime green-----
