Glad you are back for part 2!
So here are 2 ways you can make your own envelopes:
This is stupid easy.
|Yon sheet of 8.5x11 paper|
|Fold the bottom up, so that about an inch or so is left at the top|
|Tape the sides and fold over the remaining inch. TA DAA!|
A bit more involved, but completely worth it.
|Start with a large template. I chose my favorite envelope size|
and unfolded it, then traced it to make this pattern.
|Reduce the pattern by whatever percentage you like by|
using a copier. I am using the 50% reduction. The finished
envelope will measure 3" long x 2" high.
|Trace the template onto your envelope paper.|
|Make sure you trace the fold lines from corner to corner.|
Cut out along the outer tracing line.
|Fold inward along the guidelines. Run a line of glue along the|
bottom most edge. It will be the one with the squared off point.
|Here is the front. This size will hold one ounce of loose leaf tea.|
|Here are two made from wrapping paper scraps. The full size|
one is the 50% size, and the smaller one is made from a 30%
|I used the full size template for this one. Here is the outside...|
|And a rather surprising inside! ;)|
I would love to see what sorts of envelopes you make, readers!
