Good Morning! Becky here today with a simple envelope tutorial. I have gifts on my mind right now, with both Mother's Day and graduation celebrations coming soon. I like to give gift cards and money, but I don't like to give them without some flourish. Creating custom envelopes is SO quick and easy!
For your template, the easiest idea is to use an envelope you have as a template. Carefully, take it apart.
After you cut out your envelope, use a bone folder or ruler to crease the folds.
Then put a little adhesive on one flap that overlaps the other two. So easy!
After you have your envelope put together, it's fun to customize it with simple premaid embellishments.
It's not just a girly project. I made a more masculine version for a graduation gift.
The Mother's Day envies are little more feminine with a few more embellishments.
One of my very favorite October Afternoon papers is this floral.
I hope this simple gift idea tutorial inspires you. I'd love to see what you make, so please share your take on the OA Flickr group!
