Whilst surfing through the discussions over at Art Fair Insiders, I heard mention of a product called a Gallery Pouch, which is like SUPERPOWERED bubble wrap envelopes that keep your art safe. One thing led to another and I found myself experimenting with how to Do It Yourself by making my own pouches out of things you should easily be able to find at your local hardware store.
This time, I finally hauled out the camcorder to record my efforts! Enjoy and feel free to ask questions!
Oh and should you join up over at Art Fair Insiders, tell them that AngelaRSasser sent you in the referral field!
EDIT: I should also note that I have weather tested these envelopes by leaving them in a car parked in the sun from dawn till dusk and they showed no signs of melting tape or other adverse effects. Time will tell how well they stand up to weathering usage, but I am optimistic about their survivability thus far.

This is really awesome, and so simple! Very clever, m'dear. Will you be able to do a follow-up post transport to show how well they survived?ReplyDelete
Yup! Once I return from Imagicon in Alabama I'll do a follow-up for how well they survived. I already tested them by leaving them in a car all day long, with great results (no sticky glue or melted tape!). I'm optimistic about the results, so far!ReplyDelete
And kicking myself for not thinking of something like this sooner!
Angela, this is all so cool...love these envelopes. AND thanks for your kind words about ArtFairInsiders.com, a little project that is dear to my heart. Thanks for joining us and for all your participation.ReplyDelete
Hmm...I like the sound of those envelopes! Look forward to reading your follow-up later this year. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for posting. I'll be making some tonight.ReplyDelete

What a great idea. How have they lasted so far?ReplyDelete
Are you happy with them? Any changes you would make?
Sorry for the long delay in reply. The bags I made with the metallic tape have lasted a couple of years now! If the edges get worn, I just renew with a new layer of tape. I can't think of any changes I would make thus far.Delete
This is BRILLIANT. Thank you so much for putting this tutorial together.ReplyDelete
