The Very Best of Happy Hello Simply Sent - Stampin' Up
I searched the internet and found the very best ideas for using the Stampin' Up Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit and added a few of my own twists. With a few pieces of added paper you get eight cards with envelopes, two boxes, a bag and an envelope gift holder with a belly band.
Check out the instructions for each project below:
Candle Birthday Card: Attach card base to a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Smoky Slate Card Stock, stamp with Happy Birthday Wishes from the Simply Sketched Stamp Set; tie a piece of the twin around the front of the card; cut four pieces of the Smoky Slate trim to 1 1/4" lengths and adhere to the card over the twine; take one of the medium yellow flowers and cut the petals to resemble candle flames and adhere above each candle; apply Stickles or glitter to the tip of each candle flame.
Doily Card: Card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" So Saffron; Cut the front off of one of the Happy Hello cards and adhere it to a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Smoky Slate 1/4" from the top; Cut a doily in half and adhere to the middle top of the card; wrap a piece oƒ 3/8" x 6" of yellow ribbon to the top to hide the seam then tie a knot bow over the ribbon with a smaller piece of the yellow ribbon. Attach the adhesive back flowers using a punched Smoky Slate tiny flower for the center of the flower.
Just Because money/gift card holder: Fold card with white part to the outside, score folded card at 1" from the fold and fold front over and glu two folder l" edges the the back. (Note I used the word window punch, but this is not necessary are the money or gift card will stay in place between the fold and the card base.) Adhere card base to a piece of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Smoky Slate stamped in the lower right hand corner with sentiment from SU Vintage Verses in Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Cut three pieces of the strips of the Basic Gray to 1 3/4" each and adhere to the upper left of the card. Tie a button with a piece of the twine around the front of the card and secure with a glue dot.
Gift Card Holder: With the Word Window Punch, punch a hole large enough to hold a gift card in the back of one of the cards. Adhere (around the edges only) to to a piece of 5 1/2" x 41/4" piece of Smoky Slate card stock that has been stamped and embossed with "just for you" from the SU Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Cut a piece of Sycamore Street designer paper to 1" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the top front of the card; adhere a piece of 1/4" x 6" ribbon to a strip of the Smoky Slate then attach to the front just under the dp, tie a knot bow of ribbon to this then top with a two piece flower and a button with a twine bow.

Adhere Smoky Slate strip to front of card topped with a piece of 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of So Saffron card stock. Build one of the flowers and adhere to the strip. I used the tiny flower punch for the center of the flower.
Hello Stationery: Adhere card over a piece of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" So Saffron card stock that has been scored and folded at 4 1/4". Use two pieces of the Smoky Slate adhesive backed strips and build two flowers as shown adhering to the front of the card and inside bottom right. Perfect for writing a letter.

Put you hand into the envelope and gently force open expanding sides and bottom to 2" and into a bag, gluing bottom triangles.
