Default 13 x 13 Vinyl Envelopes

I keep my DSP in 13x13 vinyl envelopes that I had been purchasing at Michaels and now they don't sell them any more! Not even online. I tried searching the internet for these, but can only find one place that sells them and they are the button and string closures and they want $4 each! Yikes! The ones I got at Michaels were, as near as I can recall, 5 for $10? They snap shut and I just love them. I can see my paper and they stand in a plastic tub in my craft room. I put a white plastic label at the top of each, indicating the name of the paper series. I reeeeally don't want to start over with another storage system for DSP. Any ideas where I could find these?

Now that I am thinking of it, the Michaels price was $19.95 for 5 and I used a 40% off coupon.

Oh no! I started using these as well and love them! Hope we can find a source for more.
I checked the link above, but can't tell if the sides are gusseted, like the ones from Michael's.

The description below the item says they expand to 1 1/2" so it sounds like it is gusseted. BUT, it also says it comes as a package of five (different colors) and the item is described as a 10 pack. So, not sure the if the description is wrong or the item (above the description) is wrong.

Thanks, ladies! I searched Amazon, but didn't find them. Don't know why! I wish they were all clear, but then if wishes were horses, beggars would ride! I'm just glad someone could find them. I just love Splitcoasters!

A suggestion. You could use the walnut creek hot tool to make your own vinyl pockets. I bought my tool for doing this recently but haven't used it yet. ��. I had seen videos on YouTube that showed how to do it

Here's the clear ones:

But they have the string closure. Looks like that's the way Generations has gone. They're thinner that way...

It doesn't look like they are gusseted either.
