Handmade Envelopes

Super Cute Handmade Envelope!

Thanks to Jessica for sharing this great idea! Using envelope templates and magazines you can make your own cute envelopes.

Go through old magazines and tear out any pages that have some graphic designs or great pictures.

Get your templates and/or envelopes. If I have a great shaped envelope I'll unfold it and save it to use as a template. Templates are available for download at these different websites.

  • Envelope for Gift Card
  • Envelope for Greeting Cards
  • Basic Envelope Template

  • Next, cut out your magazine pages using the templates. Here are mine.

    Fold & tape the envelopes. When addressing them, use a white label so that the address can be clearly seen.
    How fun would it be to receive one of these in the mail? The plate of cookies would be great for Christmas and the dragons head or jelly beans would make a great birthday envelope.
