Craft of the Week: DIY Envelopes

I kind of get tired of sending my elder the same old envelopes.
So I decided it would be a good idea to look up some templates and make a bunch of cute envelopes to send him & my other friends on missions. Thank goodness my mom is a scrap book paper hoarder.

It's Letter Time:


Before we start, the most important thing you will need is a template. If you are like me, you can free hand. However, a lot of people prefer to trace templates and score their letter. I'll provide the template bellow each letter!
Most of my inspiration came from this gem: go give her blog a follow :)

This is the easiest letter to make, but I just love its simplicity. In case I haven't mentioned this before: I love when things are simple. I prefer daises over roses, picnics over fancy restaurants, and a dingy old truck over a Mercedes.


1. Fold in the side flaps, apply glue to the outside of each
2. Fold up the bottom flap and secure it to the side flaps
3. Insert letter, and glue the top flap down.

This one is fun because the template is in the shape of a heart! You might want to use a large sheet of paper when making this one because the letters turn out rather small.


This is my absolute favorite envelope! Mostly because its different than the normal envelopes we come in contact with every day. I absolutely adore how the flap is round and at the top! I did a lot different variations of this letter with a square flap and a design top. All the templates allow you to kind of put your own twist on them.


Make length & other design adjustments as necessary :) 

Hope You Enjoyed!

Remember if you use any of these ideas please email me pictures at:

Have a wonderful week ladies & remember

Keep Calm & Wait On
