Envelope Bag--SA Recycled Challenge #2

Stampin' Up! has a fantastic new product coming out on September 1st, an Envelope Punch Board.  You can make 66 different sized envelopes from a piece of paper.  The measurements are right on the Punch Board for all the envelope sizes.  So easy to use and the tools are all part of the system, no changing things in and out to finish your custom envelope.

It is fantastic for making envelopes, but you can make other things with it as well.  I made a custom 5" by 7" envelope and turned that into packaging for some cards.  You can see a wonderful video for this on Stampin' Addicts.  First I closed all the seams of my custom envelope with sticky strip.  Then, I scored three sides of the envelope 1/2".  The forth side I cut off just enough for it to open.  When you fold it open you get this cute little 4-1/2" x 6" x 1" box.  Fits standard cards and envelopes perfectly.    I then stamped all over the front with my Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and Off the Grid Stamp in Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Illuminate Glimmer Ink (shows better in person).    A quick torn belly band and a simple Thanks! label with the Window Frames Collection Framelits.
You can see more Envelope Bags on Pinterest.  Go to the Recycled Challenge #2 board on the Stampin' Addicts Page.
