Envelope Treat Bag

So, I had to make an 'altered item' for one of my MW Express kit projects, and I figured what's more altered than making something out of something else?  This is actually an 'oldie'...I was shown how to do this about 10 years ago, and I think they are perfect for Valentine's Day. Here is the finished product:
Start by sealing the envelope closed, and cutting of one of the sides with decorative scissors, or a border punch:
Measure in 1/2 inch, score and fold (in both directions) on remaining 3 sides:
Push in bottom folds, and shape into a bag:
Tape down the little triangle tabs:
And...that is how you make an envelope into a bag! Embellish as desired :)

Pin It!
