Raise your hand if you are a stationary fiend.
I'm more than a little obsessed with pretty paper goods and rarely leave a craft/stationary store without a bag of loot in tow.
I found this darling how-to on Pinterest on how to make your own envelopes using wallpaper samples.
I happen to have a box of craft papers which have been sitting on the shelf all sad and lonely since Christmas.
Now they have been transformed into these beautiful envelopes just singing for a handwritten letter to be slipped inside and mailed across the seven seas.
This tutorial is so quick and easy these things practically make themselves.
Ready? Let's go...
~ craft paper/wrapping paper/wallpaper samples or any pretty patterned paper you have to hand
~an ordinary envelope
First, open out your envelope, lay it on the back side of your craft paper and use it as a template to trace around with a pencil.
Cut out your template shape with scissors to get an envelope shape.
Fold each corner at the edges.
Use glue to stick together the bottom and each of the two side flaps.
That's it! You are done!
See I told you it was super easy ^^
Decorate with pretty stamps and labels and fill with love notes and pen pal letters and poems and cards and anything else that people love getting in the mail!
