Make it: DIY Funky Folded Envelopes
Create easy superstar envelopes with scrapbook paper and embellishments. All you need is a regular envelope to create a template.
Purchased envelopes in various sizes to use as patterns
Bone folder or ruler
Scrap or handmade paper, magazine pages, wrapping paper, etc.
Optional: decorative stickers
1. Carefully peel apart the glue holding together a purchased envelope. Trace this shape onto your paper. Cut out.
2. Fold in the side flaps, then fold in the bottom envelope flap. Reinforce sharp folds using a bone folder or ruler.
3. Use the glue stick to adhere the bottom flap to the side flaps where they meet.
4. Fold the top flap down and score with the bone folder or ruler. Once the envelope is filled, use a glue stick or decorative sticker to seal it. Add stickers, and other scrap booking embellishments, as desired
