Since I discovered the envelope maker, making envelopes for cards is so easy. But every now and again I don’t have it with me and so necessity calls that I can make an envelope in a few minutes on the fly.
This is the perfect solution I have come up with to date that is quick and easy and looks really amazing with its pinwheel flaps in the front.
Cut Lady Pattern Paper Kraft paper into squares measuring 5×5”. Fold all the squares in half using your bone folder.
Fold each alternating corner over like dog ears. I just eyeballed mine and folded them using a bone folder.
Adhere the squares together by overlapping the squares over each other. Alternate the squares top and bottom.
Finish off the envelope by adding a ribbon and tying it into a bow.
Now you are ready to add some of those beautiful handmade cards you have been stocking up on. How about making a cute smaller version using the same concept for a gift card for someone special?
