Did you know four circles can create a square? Sounds crazy, right? Well, with a little help from the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter, you can create custom square envelopes to house letters and notes.

I am a huge fan of the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter. I have used this tool to create countless projects where I needed a perfect circle and didn't want to run the risk of doing it by hand and having a lopsided circle! I've used the cutter to create paper party balls, a large paper wall flower, circle baskets, and more! With the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter, you can create a circle as small as 4 inches and as big as 12 inches. I love how versatile this tool is. It allows you to cut lovely circle rings in different sizes and since it has a double-sided blade, you can cut in both directions, making it super easy to use.

In the below video, I show you how to use four circles to easily create a square envelope. With a few folds and some glue, you will have your own customized envelope. After you create your envelope, all you need to do is add your favorite ribbon or sticker to keep your envelope closed. Create patterned envelopes or solid envelopes; the choice is yours!

Here's what you'll need:

  • Patterned Scrapbook Paper
  • Martha Stewart Circle Cutter
  • Ribbon
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Let's get crafty!

After you have constucted your square envelope, toss in a quick card or gift...

...then fold down the sides and add a sticker, ribbon, or other embellishment to give it even more character!

You could also use these square envelopes as gift wrap to house dainty jewelry for a friend, bridesmaid, or family member.
