I don’t know why but it seems that, I tend to D.I.Y a bank bag for myself every year without failing. Like this one I did in 2008. My current one looks like this now…
Another hamtam-hamtam DIY project, wrapped coloured paper around envelope and also another plastic cover then bundle with my cute Minnie Mouse band. Totally looks like salted veggies now.
So I came up with a new one today.
It’s really easy to make. I finished this in about an hour.
All you need is just some envelopes (again) and a piece of paper (as the cover), double tapes and scissors. No sewing or stitching needed. I used like, 10 envelopes.
First of all, cut off the sealing part of the envelope. Actually, I have no idea what is it called but you get the point.
Get some double tape and attach them all together,
Get your card stock/paper out. Measure the size of the base and also the cover.
(You saw that 4 creases on the card stock? That’s what I’m talking about)
Cut away the extras again.
Stick your bundle of envelope to the card stock.
You can now slot in your bank books and whatnots.
Labeling! I wish I have nicer handwritings.
Now, you can either use ribbons, buttons and threads, velcro or anything to stick them together.
I picked velcro but it was a major fail. Apparently, the velcro sticks better than double tape.
Think this is like the most beautiful bank bag / accordion folder I’ve ever made. And it’s going to be so easy to find my bank books and slips without tugging it all out and later struggle to put it back.
