Do Mini Envelopes Serve a Small Purpose?

I love mini envelopes because they’re cute and dainty. They come in warm and cool colors and make everything they come into contact with look ten times sweeter. I’ve collected them just for fun with absolutely no idea what I'd use them for. But there’s more than meets the eye. Although they can’t be mailed, mini envelopes can be a whole lot of other things.


Think of creative ways to add a mini envelope to unique gifts. You can lightly place them on top of your boxes or attach them to gift bags.
