I love handmade envelopes but it's taken me a while to have a go at making my own but I have to say I now love making them and got carried away and made loads!
Want to make some? here is how:
Find an envelope the same size as one you want to make and carefully pull it open. This will be your template.
Select some paper for your envelope. You can use anything including magazine pages, wall paper or scrap paper.
Draw round your envelope....
and cut it out.
Now this is the bit I just discovered and it makes your finished envelope really neat.
Place your envelope template on top of your cut out envelope. Fold the envelopes together using the template envelope as a guide for the folds.
Fold all the sides in, remove the template envelope.......
and glue the side flaps closed.
There you go, handmade envelopes, you can even make your own glue that can be licked to seal closed.
