EASTER GREETINGS WITH DIY ENVELOPES & EGG-SHAPED CARDS

April 10, 2017

 

Once again, the craft punch inspires another post here on WHC.  I used my trusty oval punch (like the one I used to create this picture frame and this wreath), to create two inch tall Easter cards in gorgeous scrapbook paper.  Why oval? Because it looks like an egg, of course! But to go with my cards, I also needed envelopes.  In this post, I'm going to show you how to craft envelopes, specifically ones that can fit in the palm of your hand!

 

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

 

1.  Start with the envelope.  Trim paper to 3" x 3".

2.  Fold two opposite corners into each other.

3.  Fold the bottom of the envelope up, and secure by applying the glue runner to both edges.

4.  Fold over the flap.  It will stay in place.

5.  Fold over the top of the envelope, and it's complete.

6.  To make the card, use matching paper and fold in half.  Then punch out the card with the craft punch.

 

  

 

You can simply seal the envelopes with stickers (or download and print my envelope seals for Easter right HERE!)

 

 

These tiny greetings would be cute for small gifts or flower arrangements.  And you can apply the method for all future snail mail projects.

 

Thanks for taking a look today, friends.
