Envelope Gift BagsWhenever you buy a greeting card it comes with an envelope, whether you intend to mail the card or not.  If you are not mailing the card, then the envelope is really just a waste of paper.  Instead of needlessly stuffing the card into an envelope just give the recipient the card and use the envelope to make a “baglet” for a lovely gift.  Rather than buying a new card at all, consider a makeover for a plain notecard and a used or found envelope to make a gift bag.

Envelope Gift BagsJessica Jones, from How About Orange, shares this wonderful tutorial for turning envelopes into gift bags, which she cutely nicknames “baglets”.  The tutorial includes a printable template for a To/From label and tips for decorative touches like a scalloped edge or adding a ribbon handle.

For other great eco-gift wrapping ideas try using comic strips or these tips from Danny Seo.
