Saturday StepXStep:Burlap Envelope

Good morning friends and welcome to the weekend, it is Teresa popping in to share today.  On Saturday's around here we share a Step x Step project with you.  I have a super simple, yet super fun and so very sweet little creation to  inspire you with today!

This is the finished sweet and simple burlap envelop/gift satchel.  I can't think of anything that goes any better together than burlap, a flower, and a rusty heart, can you? 

I started with a piece of burlap, size 8x8; but you can use any size depending on how small or large you want your finished envelop to be.

I then used Scor-Tape to adhere it all together.  I folded up the bottom corner, added the tape strips and then folded in the sides. 

Here is a photo with the sides folded in and the top flap still open.

You can use a old safety pin, a tiny clothes pin, a button with a piece of twine, or a simple glue dot to hold the flap down.  Decorate until your heart is content, I kept mine simple and sweet.  Be sure to head over to The Funkie Junkie Boutique and pick up your supplies to make your very own envelopes.  These would be perfect this Christmas for gift cards, too cute!
