How to: Make Custom Envelopes

Happy Friday! Big creative plans this weekend or is that just me? If you're looking for an idea, how about custom envelopes! They're fairly simple and make a such a nice statement when they arrive in the mail.

I realized I've shown my custom envelopes (here, here and here) and given brief directions, but never an actual tutorial. So without further ado, on to the how-to...



Paper from: Paper Source. Isn't it pretty?

I made my template by deconstructing an envelope the same size as the cards I made. It was extremely easy. If you'd prefer to use a more professional template, Paper Source sells an Envelope Template Kit.






 

That wraps up another week of the September Creative Challenge! Thank you for following along and all your sweet comments. If you're hoping to do some creative projects around the house this weekend, check out what Inspired Honey Bee's been up to this week. See you back here on Monday with more fun projects!
