Special Packages: Mini Envelope Template and Tutorial
It’s funny finding things I’ve made and forgotten about! I created this envelope template and posted it on my old blog year ago. Because it was so popular I updated it from a basic hand drawn template to a digital download at one point. After rediscovering it, here I am, using this template to make sweet little envelopes for my miniature artworks. I am reminded that working small is certainly not new to me! For some reason I am continuously drawn to creating these miniatures.
Here’s a quick and easy tutorial on how I created these envelope templates. The downloadable template can be found in the materials list below:
Begin by tracing your envelope onto your tracing paper. Cut out each envelope then fold. Add two pieces of double sided tape to secure the bottom flap, as pictured below. I cut my tape in half lengthwise because I only had wider tape on hand, but you may find it easier to use thinner tape like the one I have linked above.
You could leave your envelopes as is or continue to embellish them. I decided to crinkle mine up and press them under books to flatten them. I then added some washi tape and some collage papers I added a few stitches to with embroidery floss. Attach these pieces using your double sided tape.
And now they are ready for your miniature artworks or pretty handmade cards.
