Another craft Idea....

Homemade envelopes!

I made these for Trey's Birthday invitations this year. I made up my own template but I found one online by a gal named Jessica Jones that you can print here.

Using the template cut out your paper. I thought it would be cute to add some paper on the inside of the envelope. So I glued a rectangle of paper onto the top of the envelope. It adds a little extra something. You can also do this in ready-made envelopes.

Fold the envelope as indicated on the template and glue the sides in.

They are so easy and cute. They would be really great with double sided paper as well!

Give them a try!
