Picture of Catalog Envelope

A simple and cute way to hand out your catalogs, order forms, and contact information at events and expos, or even to carry in your car or purse so it's ready for the potential client you meet in the store or at your child's school!

Step 1: Supplies

You will need:

Print out of the template below
12x12 paper of your choice
Ruler
Scissors or cutting blade
Pencil
Glue

Step 2: Score Your Paper

First, align the top left corner of the printed template with your 12x12 paper.  For added ease, you can secure it with a small piece of tape.  Be sure you are working on what will be the inside of your envelope.

Using a ruler and the edge of your scissors, score the entire length of your 12x12 paper along the lines on the template

Step 3: Next Score

Measure down 2 inches from the bottom of the printed template, or 1 1/2 inches up from the bottom of your 12x12 paper.  Mark in several places, then score.

Step 4: Cut

Cut out oval.  Cut off small rectangle formed in lower left corner by first and last straight line score.  Cut off larger rectangle formed by straight scores in lower right corner.

Step 6: Glue

Refold envelope.  Put glue along flaps and glue into place.
I glued mine to the outside back of my envelope so they wouldn't get caught on anything I was putting inside.

Once dry, slide your catalog, order form, business magnet, etc... into the envelope.  You can put your business label or stamp on the outside.  If desired, tie shut with a pretty ribbon!
