This is an oldie, but goodie - turning envelopes into treat bags. I found these really cool Seventies envelopes at a flea market. (It was more flea than market, but I did come away with some great stuff!) Don't you love the orange and hot pink?
It couldn't be easier to turn your envelopes into a quick gift bag - perfect for a little treat or gift card - maybe both?
Seal the envelope (I use glue, instead of just licking it - want to make sure it stays sealed).
Then cut open one end - you can use pinking shears or decorative scissors.
Now what? Just decorate!
This one already has some fun flowers. I pinked across the top, clipped on a pretty butterfly and glued in a white doily on the inside. Love it!
This one is a plain white envelope. I wrapped wide washi tape around the bottom. Holes are punched across the top and threaded with twine. It got a pretty butterfly, too!
Need a quick gift bag? Try an envelope!
Hope you're having a lovely week. Happy you came by!
