Envelop Gift Bag Tutorial

Use a letter sized envelop and seal it shut

Stamp the envelop with a nice pattern with your choice of ink colour and scor the long sides 1cm each side and scor the one short side 2 cm or smaller whatever you wish. Cut 2cm off the other short end

open the envelop up and fold the excess on the bottom and glue dot the excess to stay flat

fold about 1 cm at the top and punch 2 holes side by side to put ribbon through them

This is the completed project using a simple letter size envelop you made a wonderful little hostess gift for those unexpected occasions when you need a little something. I fill mine with a mini lotion, nail file and lip balm with some packaged candy
