Fold different kinds of doilies to show off particular elements of their patterns -- a starry mandala, a ring of wheeling snowflakes, a fragile open heart.
Tinted art paper
Markers or pen
With the embossed side of the doily face up, fold in the sides, then fold up the bottom.
Cut a piece of tinted art paper to fit neatly inside.
Write something flattering and true, and seal the envelope with the tap of a glue stick.
