Make it: Fun Paper Envelopes

This quick and easy idea is perfect for using up bits of paper and scrapbooking supplies. Your friends and family will be delighted when they see a handmade envelope.

Materials:
purchased envelopes in various sizes to use as patterns
pencil
scissors
bone folder or ruler
glue stick
scrap or handmade paper, magazine pages, wrapping paper, etc.
optional: decorative stickers




1. Carefully peel apart the glued edges holding together a purchased envelope. Trace the shape of the opened envelope onto paper and cut out shape.

2. Fold in the side flaps first, then fold in the bottom envelope flap. Reinforce sharp folds using a bone folder or ruler.

3. Use a glue stick to adhere the bottom flap to the side flaps where they meet.

4. Fold the top flap down and score with a bone folder or ruler. Use a glue stick or decorative sticker to seal the edges. Add stickers and other scrapbooking embellishments to the front of teh envelope.
