Envelope Making

For those of you who would like to create your own envelopes but find it a bit intimidating, I found a seemingly easy template online. I originally planned to show you the way I've made envelopes in the past, but this week my mom happened to come across this template and I thought I'd share how easy it is to make. While Skyping my dear friend Grace, I tried it out, and love how easy it is. Here are the step by step instructions.
1. Gather supplies, a sheet or two of scrapbooking paper (depending on how many you wish to make), a pencil, glue stick, washi tape, and scissors.

2. Cut the price tag off. :)

3. You now should have your paper ready to go. 

4. Envelope template found online cut out and ready to go.

5. On the back of your scrapbook paper, use your pencil to trace the pattern and cut out. If you start on the edge of the paper you may have enough to use for a card. :)


6. Your template should look like this after being cut out. 

7. Once your template is cut out, simply fold the two sides in and bottom up..

8. Now you are ready to close up the envelope! 

9. Grab a glue stick and lightly glue the bottom 3/4 of the way up each side. You want to have the envelope stay together but if you go up all the way, you'll have the part sticking to the inside. :) That happened to me. ;)
 

10. The final step once your letter is written and ready to send, simply use washi tape to close up the flap.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this tutorial and if you would like to make it, please go here. :)
