Earlier this week I started on a new collection of greeting cards for Kitsch. When I opened my stack of cards I realized all the envelopes were water stained and wrinkled! I didn't want to have to run out to return them (and less than 20 envelopes were effected) so I decided to make my own envelopes to go with my cards.
You can use my template above for a card 3.75"x6" or follow these super easy instructions to make your own envelopes of any size. I may start doing this for all my cards!
On the top and bottom, draw a line 1" from your card edge. I angled the sides a bit.
On the right side, draw a vertical line half the width of your card away. So, if your card is 4" wide, draw a line 2" away. On the left side, draw a vertical line half the width of your card + 1"....so the line would be 3" away. Starting to make sense? Again, I angled the sides a bit.
Now, cut out along your lines and fold: 1) the right side, 2) the left side (with some glue on the edge), 3) the bottom (with glue), 4) insert your card, add a line of glue and secure shut.
