Christmas Keepsake Folders

I have made these Keepsake Envelope Folders for birthday and "just because" gifts before and thought they would be nice for Christmas too. Especially for gift certificates.

You will need 3-5 envelopes, ribbon, a hole punch and patterned scrapbook paper and stickers.

Fold the flaps back on all but one of the envelopes you want to join. With the unfolded flap on the bottom, stack the envelopes, open side up. Moisten folded flaps; affix each to the envelope behind it.

You will have several folders to hold your gifts.

You can decorate the front of the folder however you wish. I used patterned scrapbook paper...

...and Christmas stickers.

Punch a hole through the bottom center of all the envelopes and fold last flap over.

Thread a ribbon through the hole, and tie a bow.

I think these are so neat. I saw them in Martha Stewart, but didn't know what to put in them. After I saw your other post on them it gave me ideas and I made one for a friend. They are too cool!
