Tiny packages ready for a flat mailer!

Do you ever feel like you have too much stamping stuff? Every once in awhile I will go through my stamps and papers and get a box ready to give away...but as anyone who is an enthusiastic stamper knows...there are always new stamps arriving in the mail, irresistible ribbons to add to your collections...and of course, the latest paper is always a fun find! I find I always have a lot of the 12x12 scrap booking paper collecting dust and lying below piles, leftover ribbon pieces, and odd flowers sitting in a drawer. Today I wanted to mail a friend a little surprise package and my usual method would be to find some bright colored tissue paper, wrap it up, and stuff it in a flat mailing envelope.
But this time, I decided to look through my paper scraps, then spied two pieces of spring yellow dotted ribbon laying on my desk...and an idea flourished.
So here is my version of "brown paper packages tied up in string..."
                                                        Various scrapbook paper, ribbon, doilies
                                                                 and Martha Stewart stick on flowers
                                                         I bought several packages of these
                                                             Prima Flowers years ago!

                                                I grabbed a doily for pretty framing!
If you are sending a package and are looking for ideas for easy and flat...just take a look around your stamp studio. These packages fit great in the lined mailers and only cost 2.50 to mail the entire package!
Sometimes it's the simplest and easiest ideas that make me happy!
Thanks for spending part of your day with me...blessings!
