The days grow shorter and brisker: time for tea and more snail mail! Inspired by this antique-looking floral scrapbook paper I found in my local craft store, I decided to try my hand at making envelopes. It couldn’t have been easier: just cut and fold, and voila, crisp, pretty envelopes ready for the postman. I made two patterns: one for A4 envelopes and another for A6 envelopes. For most accurate sizing, print at 108%.
What you need:
scrapbook paper (or other thick stock)
bone folder (or something else that is good for creasing paper–a ruler, pen, etc.)
Just trace the pattern on the back of your craft paper, cut out, and fold and crease well along the dotted lines. Glue where the flaps overlap. Done.

Love those poppies!!
So pretty! Betty loved receiving her letter–once she figured out what it was! Sorry she hasn’t replied—the onslaught of homework has finally come home to roost. Are you on a campaign to bring back letter writing? That is a campaign I can get behind!
No need for Betty to reply–I just wanted to introduce her to snail mail!!! xoxo
I love these! I think my sisters would appreciate (not so much my boys . . . )
You could do flannel plaid envelopes for the guys. Everyone loves snail mail! Just like the olden days of the early 1990s!
