Imagine getting a beautiful card in a beautiful envelope. Yes, a beautiful envelope.
How many times do we send out cards or even receive cards in plain white or colored envelopes. No, one really thinks about creating an envelope to match the card inside. I’m guilty of that myself. I spend a lot of time on creating my cards, I don’t even thing about the envelopes that they are going in.
That’s why I’m so excited that Papertrey Ink has a great Make It Monday #163 challenge going on this week called Envelope Wraps! This challenge has challenged me to really think about the envelopes I’m using to send my cards out in.
Making my envelope wrap was entertaining. I changed my mind seven times on how I wanted my envelope to look. I finally decided on the style I liked.

Wouldn’t you want to receive an envelope that looked like this? I would. I probably wouldn’t open it for fear of missing it up.
How about creating this envelope wrap for your next envelope. I created a PDF for you view on how to re-create or create your own envelope wrap.

Yes I’m loving this envelope it’s so cute, bye bye plain envelopes..
What a neat idea! It adds a special touch to something that is already a nice gesture. I know that once I get envelopes like this, I will not want to throw them out! Thank you for the tutorial. I will definitely try my hand at making this at home. It looks super easy for someone who is not a crafter! What grabbed me is that it can be done in 5 minutes!!! This is a time frame that I DO have to make something as cute as this!
Super cute! I love that you made a postage stamp too!
Thank you Lizzie! I wanted my envelope to be realistic, so that everyone would want to make one and mail it out.
