I was fascinated when I saw a challenge from Sarah with instructions on how to make a gift bag out of an envelope over on the Just Bex forum. Of course I just had to have a go, the instructions are for use with an A4 envelope but as I didn't have any I used an A5 one instead! Oh boy was I chuffed when it turned out ok, I've actually had it all feld up and ready to decorate for over a week now, so today I took the plunge and decorated it, and this fits in with this weeks Magnolia, Tilda & co challenge to use 'beads'
So this is the before picture, a boring old envelope
and after, quite a sweet little gift bag, if I say so myself!!
