Oh my gosh...last night I stumbled upon this video (below) on how to make a gift bag from an envelope. Well, I had a 5x9 envelope, so I just knew I had to try it! I made a tiny bag with not much depth to it, on the first try (the one in front that I stamped with dragonflies)....and then today I got a really big junk envelope in the mail (with a window in it), and I tried again. This time I made deeper folds and it turned out a great size! I did some simple doodling on it with my new cranberry colored calligraphy pen. I stuck some gold and silver tissue paper inside to show off the window, but I think a solid color would really be great! Now I am gonna be obsessed. I think I need to start buying gifts for everyone I know, so I can keep pumpin these babies out from my junk mail. Just open those junk envelopes carefully, so you can re-glue down the flap. Oh dear...I am wondering about my mental health now!!! :) If you dare to watch the video, you better be worried about your mental health too!!! (You are welcome)!! Hehehehe.
