Picture of Heart envelopes

I've been seeing cute photosets on Tumblr and Pinterest lately showing an envelope made out of a heart. They make it look really easy, so of course I tried it out immediately. Turns out perfect heart envelopes are a little trickier than I thought, so I've added some instructions and a template so you guys can make a heart envelope perfectly the first time. :D

The heart envelope template I've attached to the next step makes a heart envelope that's the perfect size for gift cards or small notes, though I bet you could scale it up pretty easy!

Step 1: What you'll need:

Picture of What you'll need:
  • heart envelope template (attached as a PDF!)
  • paper (thinner is better - construction paper was much too thick.)
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • glue stick

Aaaaand that's it. :D

I've attached a template because it can be a little tricky to find the right shape. I spent a whole afternoon cutting out hearts and trying to fold them into envelopes. :P I've also drawn fold lines on the template to make it super easy to do.

Go ahead and print out the PDF and cut out some hearts.

I like to trace the hearts onto the paper using a pencil and then cut them out. Make sure to erase the marks from the pencil after! It'll look cleaner.
