Dang, how come people didn't think of this sooner? Great tutoriral! Thanks so much for sharing such a great idea. =) Gotta go look for some bubble wrap on sale.

Oh and I bet you could make these with fused plastic bags too for a waterproof version.. though I don't know how well fused bags glue together. I guess you can fuse them together? No experience here.

They are so much funkier than the store-bought ones! And much flashier for sending out your store's items. Great idea, thanks for the tutorial.

These are so cool!  I am always using bubble mailers and run out all the time.  Thanks for the great idea!

Wow! Glad everyone likes them.  Grin
If anyone is interested, there are ways to make them waterproof- certain wrapping papers are more "paper-ish" on the back and glossy on the front so they still glue ok. You can also coat them with lines of clear packing tape, or use a material that is waterproof in place of paper (think recycled bags- like the old navy kind that are more heavy-duty, and old shower curtain, etc) and use a better method to glue, then reinforce all the seams with tape.

this is a really fun idea even if it's not cheaper.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing.

They are super fun and, actually, for me it has been cheaper- which make them twice as awesome. I am using bubble wrap that is lying around the house from packages that have come for me or my family, so that doesn't cost me anything, and the $1 roll of wrapping paper that I am using will make me about 40 bubble mailers. Since I usually buy a pack of 2 for $1 (for plain ones, no less) I am getting a heck of a deal! Yay for recycling and clearance wrapping paper.
