I seen a picture online of open when letters, which are letters you customise and make for your loved one. An example being "open when.. You're having a bad day". I could not find any good source to help me in making these letters for a birthday gift for my boyfriend (which he absolutely loved by the way) so thought I would take step by step pictures and show you how to do them! Enjoy!:)

Step 1: Gather Your Equipment

Picture of Gather Your Equipment
First step is to get together all the equipment you're going to need, which are as follows:
• A pair of scissors
• White paper
• Coloured card
• A stick of glue
• A pen
• Confetti
• Surprises to put in the letters

I've been attempting this project for when my SO finally goes on that once-in-a-lifetime trip. But I'm stuck on the part where you print a pattern onto the paper. I've been google searching for things like "Printable Pattern" "Pattern for paper" "Printable wrapping paper" "star pattern" "Stripe Pattern" ect and I can't seem to find anything close to the wide spaced patterns you have on your envelopes!

Do you mind if I ask where you got the patterns?

I did something similar when my oldest got married. She says she still has two left. Things like Starbucks cards(she's an addict), spa gift certificates, hug coupons, phone card, and babysitting coupons.

I put the letter (obviously) some confetti, some quotes I found online and some naughty stuff!;) you could put whatever you want in them like sweets or puzzles, anything really!
