Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You'll Need Is:
If you have a color two-sided printer:
1. Envelope tamplate (I found a ton on google images)
2. Any colorful or black&white pattern, picutre, sketch or what ever you want as your cover. (Again - I found some patterns on google images)
If you only have a black and white, one-sided printer:
1. Envelope tamplate
2. A pretty piece of paper wrap or any other paper (even out of old magazines or just regular newpaper would be cool too) OR Paint the cover yourself
2.Liquid paper glue
Step 2: Print It Out!
Print your envelope template on one side and your pattern on the other (or glue the 2nd piece of paper you'd like to use as your cover).
Make sure they over-lap! I used no-edges printing and using print-preview I made sure they 100% overlap (the envelope template side should be a bit smaller)
Step 3: Make the Envelope!
First - Cut it out (Pictures 1-2). Now fold it along the broken lines (pictures 3-4).
TIP: use a ruler to make sure I fold it nice and straight.
Now using a cotton swab, apply a small bit of glue where the flaps over-lap.
TIP: use the dry end of the cotton swap to clean off any excess glue!
Step 4: DONE!
Enjoy your 2 minutes custom made envelope!
