Technique Tuesday - Make a gift bag from an envelope!

I am borrowing this technique from the Hero Arts blog.  Lisa Spangler made these adorable little gift bags for the Hero blog, using envelopes!  Here is a link to the article, complete with pictures, directions, and even a terrific video:  http://heroarts.com/learning/technique.cfm?techID=173
Aren't these just the cutest!  Imagine all the fun occasions you can make these little bags for!  I'm sure going to make a couple for two or three special goblins this halloween, and then, there's Christmas.  What a fun way to give a little treat to a special teacher perhaps, or co-worker.  I think they would also make a perfect wrapping for a gift card, don't you?
Well, it's late, and I have a very full and busy day at work tomorrow, so I'm keeping this post short an sweet. 
Blessings and peace,
