DIY Envelopes



A thing I enjoy about writing letters to a friend is to personalize it by creating my own envelopes for example! Yesterday I made a few of them and they are very easy to create. You'll need:

-Scissors
-Glue stick
-Pencil 
-Ruler
-Envelope template (I used an envelope that I carefully opened)
-Magazine or you can also use newspaper, gift wrap, fabric, plastic, pictures...
-Paper for the inside of the envelope

So I used an envelop as a template and traced the outlines onto the teared page from a magazine.  Cut it out and fold it. Because the paper of the magazine is very thin. I made a smaller template to create the inside of the envelope. Cut it and stick it onto the magazine paper. Fold it again and glue the parts together. Et voĆ®la!

Wow! Over the 2000 fans on Lookbook! I never thought I would reach that :O Thank you so much for the support and the sweet comments! Thank you thank you thank you!
