DIY- Paper bag envelopes

About a week ago I had run out of brown envelopes, in which these are my favorite when sending out snail mail, and I didn't feel like driving all the way to the store in the pouring rain with heavy weekend traffic to buy more. Sooo, I found a few paper bags lying around the house and got creative. 

The bags were already wrinkled from being handled before, so I decided to add more by crumpling the whole thing up. I then traced another envelope to get the desired shape and style for my new one. After I cut the shape out, I folded the flaps, glued them together, and put my outgoing mail inside. 

Surprisingly pleased with the outcome of the textured pattern, I decided to make another one. In the end, they were so cute, and I didn't want to send them off.
