Polka Doodles - Week 39 - Fancy Folding

Welcome to week 39 over at the Polka Doodly challenge blog!
This week Dee has challenged us to create a card or project using fancy or interesting folding.
I found the neatest tutorial for turning an ordinary envelope into a small treat bag with some basic folding techniques and I'd like to share it with you today.  You can find the template for the envelope/bag here.
Nikky's new CD, Sundae of Seasons is such a fabulous CD that it is hard to choose which images to use on my projects.  This week however, I chose to go with a baby theme and decorate my envelope/bag with the adorable sleeping baby from the "Spring" section on the Sundae of Seasons CD.  I am just in love how this sweet little bag came out!  You really can't go wrong when you're using such adorable images!  Just look at this adorable baby close up, you could just give her a squeeze, she is so yummy!

It's hard to believe that this adorable little sack started out as an envelope but here is a view of the back of the bag to show you the seams from the envelope.
I'm not sure if you can see the lines where the envelope comes together but I tried to capture them in the above picutre.  Try one of these easy peasy envelope/bags yourself and you'll be smitten!  I can't wait to see what fancy and interesting folding techniques all of you Polka Doodlers come up with this week!
Have a great weekend everyone and I'll see you next week at Polka Doodles!
