Crafting Days: Cheap DIY Envelopes!

Since I have been making so many cards recently, I wanted to have some envelopes that were not plain white or other solid color. I found online that there are a lot of people who made their own envelopes and had some pretty good tips too!

This way, I have pretty envelopes with different patterns on it with different color schemes!

Materials needed:

  • Xacto knife
  • envelope template - this can be found online or rip up a store bought one 
  • Paper pad - either 8.5x11 or 12x12
  • Scoring board
Step 1. Find a large paper pad, I got mine from Michaels for $6.99 at clearance and it had 240 sheets!

Step 2. Find a template online or use a store bought envelope. Using an Xacto knife, cut multiple sheets at once rather than use scissors.

Step 3. Score/fold the sides using a score board. If you don't have one, you can use a ruler and fold the paper over it.

 Step 4. Add glue to the edges and fold the bottom flap over and let dry before use!

Step 5. Rinse and repeat! I have made close to 50 envelopes now, but I use my silhouette cameo to help me cut. Yes, I know I cheated =)
