Paper Envelopes

I loved making these little envelopes.  Not only were they simple and easy but the results were so pretty and practical.  You can make them in any size. I suggest making a few at a time and keeping them in your desk for gifts.

    I love hand made envelopes.  These are so pretty.  Can you actually mail envelopes with buttons and other embellisments on them and  not hav them destroyed by the post office?
