    Wow! I love these! The ideas would be endless. How special to send a "written" letter in one of these beautiful envelopes! Are they hard to make?

    Great idea and you do a beautiful job. Is this a craft hobby or do you sell them?

    I just made some of those for my niece's birthday. She wanted something fancy to use as budget envelopes. My thought was to use themed fabric i.e. food pictures for grocery $, cars for gas $ etc. but she choose different colored flowery fabric.

    easy, fun project - also can be embellished with buttons, etc. on outside when given as gift card holder.

    I enjoy making them, like quilting. As far as selling, I keep trying, but no luck so far.

    I thought you had used fabric...
    Steps I followed: unglue regular envelope - trace env. on 'heat & bond' - apply this 'heat & bond' to fabric - iron fabric to original envelope - crease on original folds - refold & reglue with glue stick - glue velcro to flap & there you have it!
    clear as mud?!
