DIY: Gift Bags Made from Recycled Envelopes
By Jessica Jones, How About Orange
Find an envelope of any size. (I embellished these by printing a label on the front of them first. You can use my design if you want; these PDFs are set up according to how my printer feeds envelopes through. If yours is different, you might need to experiment. Download the label for a small A2 envelope or a larger 6×9 envelope.)
2. Cut off one end of the envelope.
4. Put the bag over one hand. Use your other hand to shape a flat bottom for your bag, pushing the bottom center crease downward, causing the side folds to buckle out. Crease the corners of the bottom into triangles.
6. Reverse the folds along the sides of the bag to give it shape.
All done. You can fill your Baglets with candy for party favors or put little gifts in them.
