Handmade Gift Card Envelopes

So what do you do with all your scraps of patterned papers? I always try and utilize them for something good, something useful and at the very least pretty. So it came that I needed some small handmade gift card envelopes for a company lunch where each employee would receive a gift card as a thank you. What perfect timing to use my Lady Pattern Paper papers in the colours of the company to make these envelopes.

Step 1

Punch a few 3” circles from your patterned papers. You will need four circles per envelope.

Step 3

Adhere the circles together. Position the first circle with the straight edge on the left. Place another circle at the top and make sure the edges are straight, then adhere then together on the inside. Repeat with all four circles.

Step 4

Make sure that you only apply adhesive to the area that will not be visible. Once adhered together your envelope will look something like this.

Step 5

Wrap a piece of ribbon around the envelope once the gift card is placed inside. Adhere it with a small piece of double sided tape to hold it in place.

Step 6

Use wax and a seal to close the envelopes permanently. The seal can easily be broken to open the envelope – but leaves it tamper proof just in case.

A nice way of using up those scraps of paper lying around your stash, but also just a good excuse for using the beautiful designs from Lady Pattern Paper for your next project. These envelopes will come in real handy around birthday and Christmas time.

TIP: Don’t have a large circle punch handy, don’t stress. Simply find anything round in your house from small plates to cups and even your double sided tape roll – there simply is no excuse for not being creative.

These handmade gift card envelopes super easy to make and so much fun! Plus the selection of Lady Pattern Paper colours give a great variety to use for all occasions.
