End of Julys meet

i set the challenge for this meet, i thought it was quite a good one but it didnt seem too popular with some of you ladies
i gave each lady a pick of a kit which consisted of a set of instructions, sheet of backing paper, ribbon, stamp or sticker and some jewels or brads, the instructions were for a bagelope which they then had to decorate using the goodies from their pack

here are the instructions they were given

Bagelope instructions

Take an envelope of any size

Seal the flap completely. You may need to use a little extra glue at the ends

Cut off the top to form the bag opening..

Score fold lines along the three sealed edges to the required size making sure they are all the same width if you have a score board this will be slightly easier. These score lines will form little squares in the bottom left and right corners.

Score these boxes in half diagonally to make two triangles, starting from each bottom corner and scoring inward.

Fold along the scored lines to form the bagelope.

The folded triangles will poke out on each side.

Fold the triangles under and glue them to the bagelope’s bottom.

Fold the top over to make a lip so that the bag is fully secure (optional).

You can seal the bagelope in many different ways.. A few options are: Velcro, double-sided tape, or file folder

Decorate as required making sure you use all of the elements included in your pack

Here are the results

and to all you ladies who didnt manage to make the meet dont worry i have a set for you which i will bring to the september meet(hope you didnt think you got out of it.)
