Miniature Vintage Envelopes

So here are a few great little envelopes that add a nice little flourish to a project - simply made from the Extra-Large Tag punch!  They took just a minute apiece and just make me happy - I could (and have) made dozens! Wouldn't they be cute on the end of a bookmark?

And a close-up! These are a bit addicting, so be warned - but you can use up all those little scraps you haven't tossed yet. They go great with the Bird Builder punch, as it always helps to have a little bird to deliver a darling little letter!
