This is a holiday slide mailer I made for the AlphaStamps Design Team. The Yahoo group is also doing an Angel Swap using some of these same materials.
Since I make slide mailers quite a bit I'm always looking for new ways to make their appearance look a bit different than the last one I made. This time I covered the whole front & back with modeling paste (the only part that wasn't covered was the double microscope slide indention on the inside). Once the modeling paste was dry on all sides I then took out some Rub-n-Buff in Antique Gold. (Sometimes I think that there are so many products out on the market these days, that you forget about certain ones that are really great to use.) I had not used the Rub-n-Buff for quite awhile and I was really happy with the outcome on this slide mailer. On the indention on the inside I cut the middle part out which separated it into two sections in order to make it one whole opening. I used the very beautiful stamp set by AlphaStamps called "Angels We Have Heard On High" for the background and then I cut out images from AlphaStamps collage sheets to put over that background. Added some German Scrap/Dresden, pearls and tinsel glitter by Martha Stewart to the inside. I then punched a couple holes in the slide mailer, added some eyelets and small binder rings, decorated the front panel and finally added some ribbon and brass embellishments and viola, I had a little slide mailer booklet.
