Festive Fabric Envelopes from Table Runners

I just finished making two fabric envelopes to send my moms and mom-in-laws gifts in. I went to the dollar store and purchased a table runner that came to a point on both ends and had a tassle. I cut both ends in a length that when folded in half would hold a card and then folded the tassled pointed end over as the flap and voila! A fabric envelope, and very festive. Later could be used to keep panty hose in or whatever.

This was so easy and quick. The table runner cost me a dollar. These dollar stores are great!!

Thanks Sharon, your description is quite clear even if you didn't get a photo. I'm trying to remember to take a pix now that I have a digital camera and my own computer it is much easier to "play around". I'll have to check the Dollar Store nearby and try. Looking for some idea for grownup granddaughter's to accompany "cash".

I'm sorry no I was so anxious to get them into the mail, that taking pictures never occured to me.

What a fabulous idea! I'm going to have to try it. Do you have photos?
