How-To: Bagalopes
By Stephanie Scheetz

The bagalope, a simple gift bag made from an envelope, is a project I’ve shared with countless people over many years. I’m still tickled by their reaction when they learn how it’s created. “That bag started as an envelope? No way.” Never has the term “pushing the envelope” been truer than with this practical paper project.
All you will need is an envelope, glue stick, liquid glue, scissors, ruler, scoring tool, pencil, rubber stamps, and ink pads (along with any other embellishments you want to add).

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
