Ever since I was a little girl I've loved paper--notebooks, note cards, blank pads of paper, pretty stationery. And as you all know by now, I also love making homemade things. So when I came across this mini envelope template I was inspired to make my own tiny, paper envelopes. Aren't they adorable?
I decided to make three different sizes so I printed the template at 100%, 75%, and 65%. I also printed them on card stock so they would be easily trace-able.
You can make these envelopes out of any kind of durable paper--scrapbook paper, heavier wrapping paper, simple colored card stock. I wanted to use supplies that I already had at home, so I decided to make mine from plain brown paper bags from the grocery store and a few of my husband's old flight charts (I asked first!).
They are really fun and easy to make and once you have the templates you can make new ones whenever you'd like. And they are entirely free, as long as you re-use old paper items you already have. It's so satisfying to make something from nothing, isn't it?
So, what will I use these adorable tiny envelopes for? I haven't a clue! (Spoken like a true creative type, right?) What I should say, is that I haven't a clue yet. Possibly something related to Christmas gifts? Or for slipping little notes to my husband? They're simply too cute not to use.
