I've been busy with work and school, but I'm also (slowly) catching up on my mail pile! As I was responding to one of my pen pals yesterday (shout out to Meg!) I was thinking about making envelopes. As some of you may know, I don't usually make my own envelopes. Occasionally I use bags from Starbucks, but I've only ever made one envelope. It arrived at its destination safely, but I covered it in tape just to be sure.
So, the question is... what are your tips for making envelopes? Is it just about practicing?
I was looking online, and Paper Source has templates that look useful.. I also remember seeing a wooden one somewhere online, but I'm not sure where.
For the one and only envelope I made, I just unfolded an envelope I already had, and traced around that. Of course, it was sort of sloppy and then I wasn't too successful at folding the sides over. Perhaps lesson #1 is to use a ruler?
Any tips and tricks are appreciated. I'm hoping to make some fun envelopes for the holidays - time to start practicing!
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend, and happy crafting!
