Monday morning, and I had nothing to do. I decided to get busy with my mail project. I did some preparations for the next time I have to write back, but I found out that the enveloped I have are boring. I thought it would be a nice idea to make envelopes myself. Why not make a DIY-post out of it?
What you need:
- Magazines with pretty images.
- Scottish Tape
- A boring envelope.
Take the boring envelope, and carefully open the entire envelope.
Tear out some pages from a magazine like Flow, Happinezz or a fashion magazine. And lay the opened up envelope on that page and trace it with a pencil. After you are done you cut out the sample.
Tip: Make sure you trace the envelope on the part that’s going to be the inside of the envelope. Or else you will have ugly pen stripes on your envelope.
fold the right flap to the left, and the left flap to the right. The v-shape at the bottom, you fold up. The side-flaps you glue to the v-shaped part. And voila, you have an envelope! If the glue isn’t working good enough, you can always use Scottish tape on the sides.
