diy envelopes

Making your own envelopes sounds a lot harder than it actually is. Today I have an easy tutorial for you guys, soon you'll be making envelopes out of any pretty paper you can get your hands on!

What you'll need

  • Pretty Scrapbook paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Envelope of any size

Carefully tear open the seams of your envelope

All Hallmark Ladies have a stash of Hallmark envelopes...
The great thing about using this method for envelope making is that there are no measurements to make, just choose whatever size envelope you want to use for your template.
Next lay it out on your scrap book paper, cut out along the edges. 
You can trace the envelope if you want, but it isn't necessary.


Create your folds, just copy whats on your template envelope.

 
Fold sides in first. Then apply glue to the inside edges of the bottom flap. Fold the bottom flap onto the side flaps, pressing firmly. Be sure not to get glue on the inside of your envelope.


All done!!



Who wouldn't love to receive a pretty envelope like this in the mail?? 
Imagine the endless color/paper possibilities!

 Stop using boring, plain envelopes, and start making your own!
