DIY Decorative Envelopes!

from $6.99

There are many decorative papers available in our stores and they have so many uses. You can use them for bookbinding, scrapbooking, wrapping gifts, making cards & envelopes, and so much more.

Instructions:

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

You will need:

  • Various decorative papers with motifs
  • Double-sided adhesive tape
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Precision craft knife
  • A pencil
  • A cutting mat
  • Pieces of scrap paper
