  2. I am taking a few minutes to visit around and just stopped in (you are on my blogroll). I tend to make my own envelopes to match the card I've made. I usually hand deliver, but your envelopes are definitely perfect for sending quilling!
    Hugs, antonella :-)

  6. Yes I saw these boxes on Ann's blog and they are totally awesome. I havent actually tried to mail any of my quilled cards yet because I was afraid of damage, so most have been hand delivered! But, I look forward to mailing in the future! Thanks for the chance to win some of these envelope mailers!

  8. Great idea, Linda, for the boxelope! I, too, have suffered over the years trying to package or box up quilled items to mail. Your invention is terrific! Any chance that you might start some slightly deeper, too? I did come from Ann's site.
    Happy New Year!!! Mailing quilling will be fun this year.

  9. Hi. I came from Ann Martin's blog. The box envelope is such a innovative idea. I have not dared to mail my quilled cards in the past...mostly they were hand delivered however I will definitely give a try to these envelopes and I am sure it will work wonderful! Thanks for the opportunity. bhpy_njoy@yahoo.com

  10. I came from Ann's blog, only because I saw hers first, hehehe. I follow both of you. I would love to win these! I usually buy a box from the post office to send my quilled cards.

  11. I came from Ann's blog. I've only hand delivered my quilled cards. It would be fun to try your box cards!

  12. I came from Ann's blog too and in the past I have done the two pieces of cardboard in a bubble envelope method. In some cases I just put them in a regular envelope and hope for the best. I would love to try your boxenvelope.

  13. I came here from Ann's site. Your envelopes look great. I've used CD box mailers I found at the dollar store to send quilled cards but the size is limited to the square shape of a CD. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your contest. ~Shelly. rkrzyzewski@sbcglobal.net

  14. What a great giveaway! I'm just getting into quilling and these envelopes look like a FANTASTIC way to ship!

    P.S. I did find you through Ann's blog! ;)

  15. I came from Ann's blog and would love to win a pack of the box envelopes with the adhesive. :) I think it is a great idea! Some of my flat bead woven jewelry could be mailed in them nicely as well. :)

  17. What a great idea! I always use bubble wrap or a padded envelope to send my cards and still worry about how they will arrive! I follow both your blog and Ann's, so I saw both of your posts! Thanks for the chance to win! :-)

  18. I came from Ann's blog. These look like a great way to solve the mailing question. I have always hand delivered quilling in the past due to fear of damage.

  19. Hi Linda,

    I didn't come from Ann's blog, but I intend to go and look. For my bulky cards, I ususally send them in a padded envelope. They would look much better in you boxalopes. So if I don't win them, I hope to buy them soon. Thanks for the opportunity to have a chance at winning. My address is linep48@aol.com Linda E.

  20. Sorry, I did not come from Ann's blog, but will be sure to go check her out. I have not mailed any out yet, just started quilling, not real good at it yet. practice practice practice. thanks for a chance to win:)

  21. Just popped in from Ann's blog when I saw her post about your box/envelopes.
    I make ribbon embroidered cards that have some dimension to them and right now I mail them out in bubble envelopes.

  22. I came from Ann's Blog. This is such a great idea. I don't do quilling but I do a lot of quilted fabric postcards with embellishments that these would be so perfect for!!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  26. Hi, I do come from Ann's blog, and I think your envelopes are a really smart idea. Since most of my family and friends live far away I'd have to use a mail service to give them a quilled card, and the lack of a decent, protective envelope has kept me from starting to quill cards. Guess what new craft I'll do this year.
    And a happy New Year to you!

  27. What a wonderful idea! I have been enclosing an extra sheet of card stock which seems to work quite well. I came from all things paper as well.

  28. Yes, I came to visit ... Ann sent me. Right now I use extra bubble wrap to protect items sent in an envelope, but your boxes are so divine and original that I would love to make the switch. Thank you so much. Karen

  29. Landed here from Anne's blog & I'm now your latest follower. The envelopes are great. I never ever mailed my quilling work with fear that my efforts would be in vain by mailing them. I always sent my quilled projects personally by using bubble wrap & a larger sized normal envelope. Thanks for the giveaway. I'd love one at least for a template & have a Canadian mailing address.

  30. Hello, it's nice to have found you! I came from Ann's blog. Just starting to learn quilling. Been interested a long time. The envelopes will help keep all my hard work safe (as soon as I finish!).

  31. I found you via e-mail from All Things Paper. Love the product and am anxious to use it!

  32. Hi! I found you via Ann's website All Things Paper, and was very inspired by the boxelope idea! I usually use padded envelopes but they are ugly, so I would love to try your boxelopes if I am lucky enough to win some to try out! Many thanks!

  33. I did come from Ann's blog, and I just love the box-envelope idea! I just started getting into quilling this past summer, and I really love it. I have not mailed any cards yet, but when I give cards away, I put them in a simple envelope that comes with the pre-made, blank cards. I am only just getting started in the realm of card-making...I feel that I have much to learn! Thanks so much!

  34. I DID come from Ann's blog! She's been in my reader for a long time now, and I love her work. I'm just getting back to playing with quilling, but I do sometimes make a floofy card that won't fit in a standard envelope. I've been using the clear boxes from clearbags dot com, but I would LOVE to try these! Thanks for the chance to win!

  35. I learned of the mailing enelopes from Ann's Blog. these are the nicest looking and functional mailers I have seen

  36. Hi. Dropped in from Ann's blog. I use card board boxes to post my quilled cards. But even then I bubble wrap them to be doubly sure. Then I put the box in a normal envelope.
    Thanks for sharing such a lovely idea.

    Cheers,

  37. Hi,

    Came here from Anns blog.I have always used a bubble wrap and again wrapped two cardboard pieces on each side before inserting in the normal envelop. This is a cool idea and quick !! .

  39. I did come from Ann's blog, and so far I've just used regular envelopes for my three-dimensional cards (but I've only given them in person - I wouldn't feel safe sending them through the mail that way). This looks like a great idea!

  40. Hi,
    I came from Ann's blog. For my 3 directional
    card i use USPS small cardboard boxes. Your creation is very good.
