Make Custom Envelopes

Steps:8
Other Ideas:
Paper
In the early part of the 19th century, letters were not mailed in envelopes. Instead, they were folded and the addresses placed on the outside of the sheet. A homemade card certainly calls for an envelope that's equally as special. It's easy to create one that's customized to the size and shape of your card.
Materials
  • Paper or card stock
  • Card
  • Triangle or ruler
  • Pencil
  • Bone folder
  • Scissors
  • Scalloped scissors or French curve, optional
  • Glue stick
