Leee-ove it! Wonderful tutorial! One NOTE: if you create a custom size envelope remember the post office has standard envelope sizing (you can download a chart to follow from their web site)
and they will charge you extra for custom sizes. Also you really can get FREE bubble wrap at many business and shipping warehouses. I work in a large department store and they toss out in the trash and recycle bins tons and tons of bubble wrap and peanuts. Take some time and call around to some of your local stores and ask. You are likely to find a good source in your area who would be happy to
just give it to you. Then you could pre make several for later shipping. My local Goodwill in Irving Texas off Beltline Rd. Often gets Hallmark out of date or last seasons rejects. I was able to pick up some really nice double sided rolls of paper for .50 cents a roll. I bought a entire sealed bag full. Maybe 12 Rolls and had no idea how I was going to use it all but it's so pretty and very sturdy. Now I know what I want to make with my FREE bubble wrap from work and my .50 cent rolls! Two more little TIPS: 1. You can create a cardboard or acetate template so you can just lay them down on your paper and bubble wrap and quickly cut out your shaped envelope.
2. You might have heard of this idea before (you quilters might know this one) you can take your large wide clear ruler for cutting fabric and attach one of those "Grip-It" handles to it. They are the ones people use to attach to their bath tubs to keep from falling in and out of the tub. They sell them at Wal-Greens or CVS in the "As Seen On TV section. You can attach them to the clear ruler and then pick up your ruler and move it to cut quick, fast and easy over and over again.
