These are so great; I really seem to be drawn to the nvelope tuts today.  That must be a sign that I need to get busy. 

I thought I would add that the paper that is not waxed paper is called parchment paper I think.  I know that you can find it in the baking aisle.

I made a set of these for a Christmas gift and they were so easy! And, the recipient loved them! Of course, her DH commented on the wrinkles and didn't quite buy my reply that they were "textured" Wink

Personally, I was impressed that I had a large enough collection of tissue that I was able to coordinate them so nicely  Grin

this is a wonderful, cheap, and easy gift to make for people.  i loved making these.
i tried the plastic wrap way first because i couldn't find the freezer paper.  when i did find the freezer paper, i was amazed at how much easier it was.  i am making them out of an old japanese teenage magazine with both the newsprint type pages and the slick colored magazine pages.  it does seem to stink a little (toxic fumes, possibly?  Cheesy) but they turn out really cute.
i also used a hanging file folder to cut out my templates for the envelopes.  they seem to be a little easier to trace around if they are made out of something sturdy. 
anyway, thanks for a great tutorial and a wonderfully fun project.

This is great - buttttttt I have an easier way for you to do this - I hope this isn't against the rules cuz I'm new here -- but if you go to this website www.greensneakers.com and I have NOTHING to do with this site - I just found it surfing for envelope help - they have the most fabulous envelope template you can buy and you just rip and your envelope is there Walla!  only $4.99 for standard scrapbooking/cards you make but you can buy a variety kit of templates I think it was like $25!

Absolutely freaking fantastic tute and idea!!  And I found this because I was looking for ideas about fusing plastic bags to make mailers for my etsy store.

You've completely steered me in another direction!!  Thank you soooooo much!!   Kiss

I have a question that might seem kinda dumb...
I am going to make these because I make gocco cards and would love some envelopes to go with them, but I can't quite figure out how to seal them. If I were mailing them, I would just use a glue stick or something, but if I want to make someone a set of cards so they can use them, how do I manage that? Are there such things as strips of envelope adhesive or a way to do the old lick'n'stick method?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You could make your own envelope glue- there are recipes (even on here, I think!) using Jell-o powder and water, mostly. Then you just paint it on and let it dry. You could Google an exact recipe.

Or, you could use envelope seals!
