{ DIY Envelopes }

Do it yourself envelopes

I was extra crafty this weekend.  With the holidays coming fast, I decided that I wanted to make homemade envelopes to give with gifts this year.  I thought that it would add just that little something to a gift card.

Step #1:  Items you will need.  
  • Scrap booking paper (my sheet was 12 x 12, I could get 4 envelopes out of each sheet of paper)
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Envelope for tracing
Step #2:
  • Trace your envelope on the backside of your scrap booking paper
Step #3:
  • Cut out each envelope then fold each flap.  
Step #4:
  • You will use your glue stick to draw a skinny line of glue on the end of the flaps.
Step #5:
  • Repeat the process.  I was able to make four envelope out of each piece of scrap booking paper.
