Slimline Envelope Gift Bags | Perfect for Bigger Cards!

Hi everyone, in the past, I have made Gift Bag Envelopes instead of Box Envelopes for my more dimensional cards, and the idea has been really popular.

You spend hours, sometimes days making a beautiful card to then put it in a box, but why not a gift bag instead?!

Below are 3 different-sized Envelope Gift Bags, which I made to hold the larger Showstopper cards.

For a 7.1/2 x 7 card.

For a 8.1/2 x 7′ card.

For a 10′ x 6′ card.

I think they look lovely with the acetate front.
