So the other day I shared or revisited the Bagalope box made from a pre-made envelope, after making that bag I was thinking that with the Envelope Punch Board I could make any size envelope Bagalope. I will show you a couple of samples I came up with the Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper.

Designer Series Paper Bags
The larger bag is made from a 6″ X 6 1/2″ envelope made with the Envelope Punch Board and the smaller bag is made from a 5″ X 5″ envelope. See how to use the Envelope Punch board here.

You can find the directions to make these Bagalopes on this post. Instead of sealing the envelope and using the end, I scored and folded the sides and bottom to make the bag at 3/4″.

Bag-A-Lope envelope directions

I used the flap to close the bag. The tags are tied to the bag with Baker’s Twine.

Side view of the Bag

The tag is made with the People Like You Single Stamp from the Occasions catalog. I also used the Scalloped Tag Topper with the Tag.

These darling Easter Treat Boxes were shared at a demonstrator event I recently attended and I couldn’t wait to give them a try. They are made with the Envelope Punch Board and very easy to make!

Easter Bunny Treat boxes
I used the current In-Colors to make the 5 boxes and the little egg is from the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set. I have made up a few pictures with directions to make these boxes.

Start with a piece of Designer Series Paper measuring 4 3/4″ X 4 3/4″ and a coordinating piece of card stock also measuring 4 3/4″ X 4 3/4″.

Easter Bunny Directions

Glue the papers together and start with the Envelope Punch Board at 1 1/2″ and score. Move to 2 5/8″ punch and score without turning the paper. Rotate the paper 90 degrees and punch and score from the end of the score lines. Repeat one more time. Rotate one more time and punch at the end of the score lines, but do not score this last time. You will not need to fold the top of the box.

Bunny Box directions
Round the corners withe the reverse punch on the Envelope Punch Board. Fold the score lines. Cut out the bottom 2 corner flaps. Glue the bottom flaps with Mini-Glue Dots.

Bunny Box Directions
Decorate as desired and add your treat to the box. I do not know how originally made this box, but I appreciate the directions and hope you have fun making this box too.

This is an oldie, but goodie from way back. The Bagalope is an envelope turned into a quick bag that you can fill with something small. I used one of the medium white envelopes cut down to 5″ to make this bag and then decorated it.

Easter Bunny treat bag
I have the step by step directions below. The fist step is to cut one of the ends down to 5″ or if you want it taller, you can just cut the one end. Seal the flap.

Bagalope directions 1
Direction 2: Score 1/2″ in in the sides and bottom end. Fold the scored lines and push the envelope open.

Bagalope direction 2

Bagalope direction 3 or bottom: When you fold the bottom score line, you will end up with little pointed corners. Press them down and glue with a mini-glue dot. That’s it! you have a little bag from an envelope.

Bottom of bagalope
The wrapper is made from a 2″ X 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper. Punch each end with the Scallop Tag Topper and wrap around the bag. I did attach the wrapper to the bag with Dimensionals. The bag is finished off with a spritzed doily and images stamped with the Flower Shop set, Petite petals, & the Eggstra Spectacular sets.
