envelope turned to gift pouch

i guess it's time to come back to life!
hope you all had a FABULOUS christmas.
i can't wait to show you some of my florida trip stuff... fun pictures and outfits.
i figure i better offer something on love notes today before i go off and do more laundry.

for a belated christmas gift,
put a gift card in this little envelope pouch.
happy day everyone.
i will get back into the swing of things soon!


transform an envelope into a treat/gift pouch:

it really is awesome. and so easy.
shall we see what to do?

all you need:
an envelope
any size depending on what you will use it for
a glue stick
scissors
any embellishments you want to add!

start with your envelope:

glue the flap shut:

cut off abou half inch of one side end for an opening:

fold and score each side except for the end you cut.
(it doesn't matter the direction you fold it, you just need the mark.)


make sure to score the folds well.
it makes the next part easier.

no you are going to open the envelope
and sort of squish out your folds so are flat and make a square:

you will have the corner flaps left up:

put some glue on the flaps and fold them to the bottom:


and that's it!

add embellishments of your choice.
i shaped my opening and added paper & doodles to make it look like a popcorn bag.
i thought this would be such a fun idea for giving a movie gift card.

just slide the gift card to the movies right in!

here's what it looks like from the back,
you can see the envelope fold.
