Window Envelope Pocket

I have been saving these window envelopes that you get in the mail with your bills. I was thinking of making a mini album with them, but I thought of another use for them :)
I made a Window Envelope Pocket with a Tag.
I like that you can see the sentiment from the tag even when its in the envelope.
Yup I thought of this as I was going to sleep, teehee.
If you want to see how I made it I did a tutorial today and uploaded it to my YouTube channel.
Today was a nice day. So hubby and I took down our collapsed gazebo. The one that fell from the heavy snow. I decided to keep two of the side pieces to put for a trellis for my climbing plants.
Hubby took a load of crusher fines to our camp/cottage, early this morning. I didn't go for 2 reasons. 1. He got up to darn early. 2.I don't think a 2 hour drive in a dump truck would be all that comfortable.

Hope your weekend is all that you want it to be. 



  1. (Slapping myself on side of head with heel of hand) Now WHY didn't I think of this?! Awesome! Can't wait to try this. TFS! :-)

  2. What a totally cool idea! Annnnnnd you can use it as a cute gift package for a bookmark!

  3. I will definitely have a go at the idea, it's so cool and sweet :)

  4. what a fun idea! might have to try this!

    glad you had a great day!

  5. What an AWESOME idea! Love this Tracy :) Hope you show us pictures of your trellis when it's all done!

  6. Hi Tracy! It's funny, I just recently saved an envelope for the pretty pattern it had on the inside of it, but it hadn't occurred to me to save them for the windows! LOVE that idea AND your video! Thanks, and whatever you're doing today, hope you're enjoying your weekend! ~tina

  7. love this idea!!! I´d like to feature this on my blog , can I?
    by the way love your butterflies papers :)

  8. That's a cool idea, thanks for sharing!

  9. cute idea.. I like it! I bought a box of window envelopes at a garage sale (about 500) for a quarter!

    Sell them to ya for $20 plus shipping. hah

  10. Now that is the first time I've ever seen a window enveloped utilized like this. You are one of the most CRAFTastic people I know!

  11. Tracy,
    This is such a great idea, I love it!!
    I will definatly be trying this out

  12. This is a great idea! I love the "green" aspect, recycling and re-using for another purpose. I always recycle those envelopes, but this is definitely a reason to hold on to them. Awesome tutorial! :)

  13. That tag is sooooo neat! I love it, what a great idea!

  14. Tracy....LOVE this idea! I have also used an envelope like this with a window to make an envelope bag, and then there is a window already in the front so you can see the goodies inside! I love recycling things! Great idea!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
