Don't you just love the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog? There are SO many wonderful products contained in those pages that it is easy to miss a few. One of the items I think that gets overlooked is the Real Red Envelope Paper. Are you wondering where this is and what am I talking about? Go and look on page 26 in the bottom left hand corner. What a deal! You get 20, yes twenty 12" x 12" text weight sheets for just $6.00 (US). You can of course use it to make envelopes but there are so many other uses for it. You can use it to layer on your cards and since it is text weight, it will not add as much bulk or weight to your card.
You can also use it to make bags. Once again pulled out the Gift Bag Punch Board and got to work.
I used a 6" x 12" piece of the Real Red Envelope Paper to make this bag, so you could make 40 0f these from one package of paper. This would be a cute way to package some tea bags and a small treat, nothing too heavy but perfect for a sweet gift to co-workers.
