Default What to do with Envelopes that are too small?

I bought a box of linen envies from www.clearbags.com and they are to small. I was wondering what people do in this situation. It would cost me about 10 more dollars to send them back and I don't want to do that. TIA.

By too small, I'm guessing you mean that a standard quarter-sheet card doesn't fit into them?

Of course, you could make cards a little smaller, but what about the accordion envelope scrapbook like the ones found here.

I got some small ones too in error....I use them for the small tea bag cards, and I use them to sort ribbon by color etc... I then put them in a shoe box so they are easily found.... Have a good day....

When you say "too small", too small by how much, specifically????

I use the A1's all the time for notecard sets. I love making the small cards.

They are 5 1/8x3 5/8 inches. They are just a tad smaller them the Fabriano reply cards.

Note cards is a great idea. Or gift cards, or fancy little gift cards for xmas presents. Or use them on scrapbook pages to hold journaling.

I was going to suggest bagalopes too! They would make great little gifts or favors if you fill them with small chocolates like kisses.

Well, then, perhaps this is a use no one has yet suggested?

I like to seal them, trim off one end, and then use a circle punch to make an "elipse" and make a little pocket. I glue them to the inside of a card front, and then tuck things like a gift card, or some tea (you know, the kind that are individually sealed, like Stash tea), or anything else somewhat flat, into them.

HTH,

Me too, I really like those accordian envelope album things...I'm always looking for something to use for a "gramma's brag book" that is FUN.
