> A paper bag
> Something that needs an envelope:
a card, letter, document, picture, anything flat that needs protection or mailing
> An iron
Use the plain side of the paper bag for the outside of your envelope.
The printed side can be the inconspicuous lining of the envelope.
You will "wrap" your card.
No need to fight with too much paper.
Be careful not to crease the card inside.
Put the card on top of the folded paper.
Leave an inch or so on each side of the card, right and left.
Be careful not to cut the card !!!
Be careful not to bend the card with these "hugging" flaps.
Start each cut at a fold, but don't cut the fold itself.
Making these cuts results in v-shapes when unfolded.
Flip the envelope form over so the plain side shows.
Make 4 complete cuts, 2 at the top, 2 at the bottom.
It will look a whole lot better.
Fold the "hugging" flaps inward.
Dot from the bottom, up to the level of the overlapping top edge.
Hold it a few moments to insure a secure bond
