Step 1: To make a stencil, draw your motif (in this case, a heart) on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out with scissors.

Step 2: Place the stencil on your decorative paper, trace the shape with a pencil, and cut it out. Do this with two different but coordinating papers.

Step 3: Attach the two shapes back to back with double-sided tape.

Step 4: Measure the height and the width of the heart cut-outs and mark the fold lines. Fold the sides of the heart inwards, followed by the top and bottom.

Step 5: To keep the envelope closed, make a slit with the craft knife at the top of the heart that the point can slide into.

Step 6: Insert the point of the heart into the slit.
