Hi friends! I love me some kraft paper. That natural brown paper is so trendy right now and a huge roll of it won’t set you back too much if you get it from our sponsor Papermart. Today I will show you how to make pretty envelopes using this humble staple. If brown is not your thing it is available in white as well. Something for everyone! Watch the video to see how to make the pretty, spring inspired envelopes!
For this project you will need:
- Kraft paper *also available in white!
- Stamps and ink
- Colored pencils
- Envelope template (or an old envelope to trace)
Directions: Cut off a piece of kraft paper large enough to make your envelope. Use an envelope template, or simply trace any envelope you have, to make an envelope. Fold and adhere the bottom flaps as shown. Flip over the envelope and stamp on flowers or whatever you like and color using colored pencils. Since colored pencils are opaque they will show up beautifully on the brown kraft paper. Tip! Use a mouse pad when you stamp for a perfect image!
Use these special envelopes for wedding invitations, thank you notes or birthday cards! They are so pretty and easy to make! Happy crafting!
