Hi crafty friends! It’s Noelle here today to share with you my latest product review. When I was at CHA, Advantus Corporation was generous enough to agree to send me some products to review for you. Today I am sharing the Cropper Hopper Paper Envelope. This is a very nice envelope that is made of a heavy plastic with a velcro closure. I really prefer the velcro closure to some of the envelopes I’ve had in the past, that had a plastic snap. Inevitably, the snap always breaks or pulls through the plastic and then you have an envelope that won’t fasten shut.

Like most Cropper Hopper vertical storage this envelope is made of clear plastic, which is so helpful so you can see what is inside.

I typically am not a crafter who buys whole lines of product. If I really like a new product line, I will usually only get a few papers, maybe a 6″ pad, and 1-2 packs of embellishments. Typically, I just pick up things I like, and mix and match products and manufacturers. But every once in awhile, a line comes along that I am so smitten with, that I MUST have everything that goes with it, plus several sheets of each 12″ paper. Such was the case with October Afternoon’s Rocket Age. My hubby works in the space industry, and my sons have always loved anything “outer space” related. I knew this line would make great boy scrapbook pages, as well as pages for Science Fair, the museum of Nature and Science, and even school themed pages. When I do invest in a whole line of product, i like to keep it all together, even the scraps. So, that is what I decided to use my new Paper Envelope for. I dug out all my bits and pieces of this line, and made a nice pile….

And, voila, it’s all together in one place! 🙂

I used my handy dandy label maker to make a nice clear label that is easy to read, because I am type A like that sometimes.

And that is all, ain’t it purty? So nice and neat, and I love how I can see into it because it’s clear.
