This is a great project, and I have some envelopes leftover from a formal event that would be great.

How big are yours sweets? Wondering if bigger ones will not work as well.

Thanks!!

These are 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" but I think bigger ones would work just as well.  The little hidden cavity on this one was pretty small.

I have that Carol Duvall episode TIVO'd ... glad to see it is a DOABLE project! Now I just have to actually try it.

Yours looks better than what Carol was showing!

I haven't looked up the tutorial online (yet), but is that fabric lining the cavity, or paper, or what?

How do you make such a pleasing, random-looking slightly-off-perfect stack? (I have absolutely no design skills- mine would look like a plain-old-stack stack! Or a pile!)

It's fabric.  I used a very thin lining of glue inside the cavity and under the first envelope to hold it in place.

I have no idea about the pleasing, random-looking slightly-off-perfect stack. Cheesy  It really was entirely random.  I went through and drew/cut out all of the envelopes totally randomly.  They just ended up that way when I stacked them together.  So much for design. Cheesy

So, are you saying... you cut the holes through the envelopes FIRST, and then stacked them, aligning the holes , and ...... what you see is what you get?

Yepper!

Each envelope has a piece of foam board inside it (to give it bulk and stiffness).  I cut out the center of one board and used it as a template for the envelopes and other boards.  I traced the cutout shape onto each of the envelopes that were going to form the box, moving it slightly each time I traced a different envelope.

Just like she's doing here http://img.hgtv.com/HGTV/2002/10/28/cds1329_1c_e.jpg
You end up with all of these randomly-holed envelopes Cheesy http://img.hgtv.com/HGTV/2002/10/28/cds1329_1f_e.jpg
