Envelop Gift Bags

Merry Christmas! It's a Texas kind of day, here we can have a mini blizzard one day and the next day the sun comes up shining for a beautiful day.
Kim over at Humble Pie sometimes gives a mini tutorial, on 12-16 she showed how to make a gift bag out of a long envelop, and as I was looking at up coming challenges Get Sketchy happens to have their next challenge up: Trash To Treasure. Some times I put the cards I make in different envelops, so I'm left with odd and end envelops, I thought great use. The long skinny envelop I kind of had to fiddle with and the bottom looks kind of messy, but this was a first attempt. The next ones I do will be neater with practice. The second envelop was a 5 X7 so it was easier to get my hand down in to fold and tape the bottom. Love my score pal tape! Easy project for all you Mom's with kidos in school who need treat bags at Valentine and you'll be green as well as red and pink.
Supplies: Extra envelops, Stamp: CTMH-D1245 In My Heart, Rubber Stampede A909E Hearts Abound, Ink: VersaMark Ink Pad, CTMH-Z2128 Hollyhock, Z2102 Baby Pink, CTMH-Red embossing powder, Memories Mists-Strawberry Daiquiri, ribbon from stash.

Thanks for viewing,
