Introduction: Make Your Own Envelopes

This DIY Project is so cheap and quick. I love it.

How cool are these envelopes!?!

They make great thank you note envelopes too

Step 1: What You Will Need

What You Will Need:
Envelope (small or large)
Glue Stick
Scissors
Pen
Magazine

-I used an old LIFE magazine because I love the ads in them.

Step 2: Unfold Your Envelope

1. Take an envelope and unfold it.

Be careful not to rip it!

You can use a large or small envelope.

I'm using a smaller one here.

Step 3: Trace the Envelope Onto Your Paper

1. Take a page out of your magazine

2. Lay the envelope over the picture and trace the envelope onto the paper

3. Cut it out

Step 4:

1. Place the side you like face down.

2. Fold the right and left sides in.

**The tips of the triangles should NOT touch.

3. Fold the bottom lip up. The bottom lip is the triangle with a flat top

4. Use a regular envelop or a piece of paper to place under the the side triangles, so you don't get any glue on the inside of the envelope.

5. Glue along the edge of the side triangles. 

6. Once you glue the sides, fold the bottom up and press it down to make sure it sticks. Then, fold the top down. Dont glue the top since this is the envelopes flap!

Step 5: YOURE FINISHED!!

Now you have your own homemade envelopes!

I made it just now! I found that if you place the unfolded envelope over the picture, you can use it as a guide to make the creases.

SO COOL, SO SIMPLE. THAT'S AWESOME!!!
Yours turned out really good, and the Life mags worked great because they really stand out.

I really don't write letters, well wait, except for holiday cards, so I can decorate them with holiday paper!!

Excellent.

Thank you for sharing.
