Envelope gift bags are quick and easy to make, and there are lots of different ways you can make them.
Using just an ordinary inexpensive envelope, you can transform it into an attractive gift bag that advertises your jewelry business.
Choose one or more envelope styles and make a bunch of gift bags when you have free time. Since they fold flat, you can store a lot in a small space until you are ready to use them.
Because envelopes come in different sizes, you can create bags of different sizes by the envelope size you choose, or the way you fold it.
And you can get envelopes in many colors if you have a particular color you like to use as your business theme. These are only a few of the envelope colors available.
Putting Your Business Info
on Your Gift Bags
There are several great ways you can add your business name and information to them.
One way is to attach your business card to the front, or use mini business cards.
Another idea is to use a sticker with your business information on it.
Or have a stamp made with your name and logo and use it to stamp the envelope gift bag front.
A really fun idea is to use photos of some of your special jewelry pieces, and attach one with your business card or stamp to the front.
You can use a bit of ribbon to tie the bag shut, or add some coordinating tissue paper on top of the jewelry to stick out the top of the bag.
These are very simple ideas for creating envelope gift bags, but you can add as many embellishments as you like.
Remember, the busier the bag is with embellishments, the less noticeable your business information will be.
However you decide to create your envelope gift bag, your customers are sure to remember you.

These are charming and I can’t wait to make some. Thank you for the idea and easy to follow instructions!
Thanks for the idea. I just purchased some white lunch bags from walmart for less than $2.00. Now I’m going to find some design scissors to cut a little of the top to get that edge design in you pic and add my sticker labels I ordered from vista print.
