Project

Doily Envelopes

Paper doilies make delightful, lacy sleeves for hand-delivered valentines.

Introduction

Fold different kinds of doilies to show off particular elements of their patterns -- a starry mandala, a ring of wheeling snowflakes, a fragile open heart.

Materials

  • Doily
  • Tinted art paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Markers or pen

Steps

  1. Step 1

    With the embossed side of the doily face up, fold in the sides, then fold up the bottom.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a piece of tinted art paper to fit neatly inside.

  3. Step 3

    Write something flattering and true, and seal the envelope with the tap of a glue stick.

    If you don't have a cookware store nearby try JoAnns or other craft stores. Some grocery stores even have them.
