"Clear Envelope Candy Purse"


Is this cute or what? My friend Nancy showed me one that she had and I just had to make some too. I made this out of a clear SU envelope.* Here is a video tutorial that Nancy sent me for these.* They are pretty easy to figure out though. It is held closed with a Velcro Dot. The circles were made with the Creative Memories Cutting Tools.

First I scored the envelope and put the candy inside and sealed the envelope. After I cut the circles and glued them together I scored them in half and folded the circles. Then put a strip of Scor-Tape on the opposite side of the sealed envelope and adhered it to the inside of the circle. Folded the envelope and added a Velcro dot to keep it closed. I hope that makes sense.

Here is what it looks like when it is opened. This will give you a better idea on how it is put together. They are a cute easy treat to make for a thank you or what ever.

Paper: Real Red, Green Galore, Whisper White, DP
