I've never used anything that sounds like that....I would just be sure it doesn't have anything in it that would melt onto your iron (very important to check for stuff like this; Mum once tried to iron tyvek Shocked). 

The only problems I've ever had are the layers not sticking together (or comming apart when I fold them into envelopes) and sometimes the dye from the tissue paper gets all over my iron and ironing board.  The former is easily fixed by ironing more/again and the later isn't a huge problem, I just clean my iron and board cover Smiley

Now that you mention it, I'm pretty sure this stuff would melt. Undecided  Maybe I could try 'melting' it on paper with a hair dryer instead of an iron?  Or something. *Rats.*

I usually just lurk on the paper boards, but I LOVE this idea!!!  You inspired me to make some envelopes this weekend.  I didn't have the stuff to try the tute, but I did make some envelopes out of cardstock and vellum.  I'm going to pick up the supplies and use your tute next week.

BTW, I use my heat gun to soften the glue on the envelope I want to use as a template.  It comes apart a little bit easier than when it's cold.  Hope that helps someone!!!

PS:  I made an envelope out of vellum and the seams split really badly.  All I did was very lightly score the seams to make them fold smoothly.  Any suggestions?

Night_owl, did you ever try making envelopes from plastic bags?  Just was wondering how they turned out if you did.  Wink

padray:  Not yet Sad

I was going to try it last week but my brain has been totally consumed by my latest knitting project (my first sweater!!).  And this coming week I'm going camping. 

But next weekend I should be able to try it!  I'll let you know how it goes (or if it even works Wink)



vintagechick:  I've only used vellum once (not w/tissue paper, just all by itself) and didn't have any problems.  I didn't score at all; maybe that's why??  Sorry I'm not much help Undecided

 Undecided I tried using wax paper and it didnt work... but I will definately have to try using plastic wrap later... Do you think it will smell bad?? Does it smell when you melt it?

I've never used butcher paper before;  I use freezer paper and it's usually with the baking stuff.  You could try using plastic wrap (second method)

Undecided I tried using wax paper and it didnt work... but I will definately have to try using plastic wrap later... Do you think it will smell bad?? Does it smell when you melt it?

Yeah I tried wax paper and it didn't work for me either.  When I use plastic wrap it doesn't smell at all.  Just be careful not to get any on your iron Smiley

Thanks night_owl.  I'll have to try it without scoring and see if it works.
