Begin by sealing your envelope completely. Then, decorate the outside of the
envelope any way you like. Keep in mind you will be folding in the sides and the
Now, fold each side in about 1/2 inch. Flip the envelope over, and along the same crease, fold again.
Finally, fold the bottom up about 1/2 inch. Flip the envelope over and along the same crease, fold again.
Now slip your hand in the envelope (see picture below) and push in the middle crease on
all the folds to form the sides and bottom.
Glue or tape the bottom corners in to stregnth the bottom of the bag.
How adorable is that? Thanks for introducing me to her! I’m off to check out her blog!!
Love you A!
