DIY: Your own envelopes + Giveaway

I'm recently into making my own envelopes. It's pretty easy to make and super cute to mail out. Let me show you how I do it!
There's a giveaway at the end of this post :)

What you need:
Paper (vintage, cute patterns, maps, music sheets etc.), plain envelopes of the size you want, glue, pencil, scissors, washi tape, regular tape.

Take a plain envelope, take it apart and fold it out. Trace the  edges of the envelope onto the paper you want to use and cut it out with your scissors!
Make all the folds in the right places, just like the plain envelope you unfolded and glue your envelope together like above.
I like to use washitape for the edges, because the envelope will be more sturdy, I also use regular tape all over the envelop after I noted the adress on it.

The Giveaway:

  • Leave a comment below and make sure your email adress is in it so I can contact you!
  • I will pick a winner next week and I'll announce the winner on monday, may 28th.
  • The winner will receive one of these envelopes filled with some paper goodies and a personal note from me!
