AWESOME tutorial.  I just finished making a bunch of these.  I bought a roll of bubble wrap for a dollar and I still have a ton left over.  The first one I made didn't turn out so well... I used brown package wrap and scrapbook glue, it turned out pretty bubbly... my next tries were a lot better!  I used scrapbook paper & a glue stick. For the closure, I added double side tape with a removable backing for when I'm ready to mail.







Even the backs are pretty...

 
Again, thank you SO MUCH, for posting this awesome tutorial.  I'm going to mail some Etsy orders out in them tomorrow.  Smiley

I'll definitely be making a lot more of these in the future.

Awesome job! Thanks for posting your pictures- they are great. I think people really enjoy getting these in the mail, especially if they do a lot of online shopping and get bored with those blah brown bubble mailers. Your Etsy customers will love them, and the best part for me is that I can make them any size I need (with scrapbook paper you are a little more limited, but with gift wrap you can go huge!)

What a wonderful tutorial and great idea! Cheesy

I have to ask though....so the inside of the bag is smooth? Because you said to glue the bubble wrap bubble-side-down, just making sure.

Yep! The inside is smooth cuz you'll glue the bumpy, or bubble, side down. This leave the smooth part- the "back" of the bubble wrap facing up, so when you close it the inside is smooth. That is also why I tape the top of the bubble wrap to the paper- so it isn't loose and can't snag or come up when you use the envelope.

Also, for those of you that are better friends with your sewing machines than your glue sticks, I also stitch the bottom shut with a zig zag stitch sometimes. Works great! Smiley

I finally made some!  I went to dollar tree, and got some bubble wrap.  Hobby Lobby had some paper, 5 for a dollar.  (I am guessing, I could make about 30 more with the bubble wrap) So, for less than $2, I present my mailers.  I ran out of glue in my glue stick, I still have one or two more to glue up.

Thank you so much for sharing these.  They look so neat.  They are about $2 each at the post office for the decorated ones.
