I still haven't had a chance to try the grocery bag thing.  Here's the site I got the idea from (<--- click me Wink).  It's only a one page article and a fairly quick read.

*edited*
 to say thanks for all the nice comments everyone!!

I'm back after a long time away and trying to find time to craft as I adjust to life as a mom!

Did anyone else have a problem with the freezer paper not sticking to the tissue paper?  For some reason I could not get this to work  Undecided 

LOL, maybe next time I'll try a higher heat setting instead of tossing the project out  Cheesy must be PMS. . .

I was so excited when I saw these that I got all my supplies together today and made some! I did two sizes, the business sized envelope and then the smaller one (correspondence sized? i think thats what it's called..) Anyway I think my tissue paper must be smaller than yours because I could only get 2 business sized out of a sheet of tissue paper OR three of the smaller size. Maybe I'm just not placing them in the most efficient way? Either way here they are:



That's one of each of the colors I did. The colors are a bit different (sorry for the bad pictures!) but there are 2 fuchsia colored ones, an aqua blue one, a purple/periwinkle colored one, and (my favorite) the lime green!



There's a close up of the back of one of the smaller envelopes.



There's a close up of the front of one of the larger envelopes.

Thanks so much for the tutorial! My older sister saw them and love them so much that she's having me make them for the invitations for her graduation (from high school!) party! I better get to work!

Yay!  Somebody used my tutorial!! Grin Grin  You just made my whole day! Kiss

They look great!!  Good luck making a bunch for your sister's invitations!  I sometimes wish my sister would ask me to make her stuff.  When I show her something I've made she usually just shrugs and says (in a very nonconvincing way) "cute".  Oh well, not crafting for family gives me more time to craft for myself (and swaps Wink)

Oh I'm so glad!  Cheesy

My sisters are quite the moochers lol. They love that I craft because they can always get me to make them something. Honestly, it does get a little annoying because then I get limited time to craft for myself so maybe you're lucky!

I keep meaning to try this...I want to, but I haven't had much crafting time for myself! I did just get some fun tissue paper, so maybe I will try it tonight! I love the colors you used, shewilldieyoung!
