In the Dec. 2008 issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine, it showed how to fold a wrapping paper "pocket" to slip a gift card into. You can access the directions on her web site, as well. I haphazardly wound yarn around the package to add a little more fun to the solid color paper.
On Martha Stewart's web site, I followed directions (video and printed directions available) to make "Handmade Heart Doilies" then used them for gift embellishments by attaching one at each end of curly streamers and one to the outside of a handmade envelope that is folded from a square of paper. The creator of fast grow the weeds... a delightful blog... shared a tutorial for making the glueless and tapeless envelopes. She uses them for seed-saving storage. I made a larger version than hers and used it to tuck a little gift inside.

Today's mileage: 2 mile walk keepin' cadence to the beat of music flowing from my headset.
Total monthly mileage: 13 miles
Bible reading? Sure.
