I have a thing for little envelopes, do you know what I mean? They are super cute and you can use them for a whole manner of things from everyday ephemera to notes and photos. They aren't difficult to make yourself & you can make them from designer papers. But how cool to make your own custom patterned envelopes using paint, stamps, pens, ink or whatever you have to hand??
I've got a handy template for you to download and keep to make your own envelopes from. Resize the template to suit your needs then print and cut it out to use. I've used eyelets and string to fasten my envelopes, but you can easily use a different fastening for yours. There are plenty of options to make these envelopes completely your own so have fun with them!
