Envelope Templates

Edited to Add: Here is a link to the template PDFs for three mini envelopes (instructions are there too!)

This gift card is 4 2/8 inches x 2.5 inches and it's made with the cardstock remnants of making two 4 2/8 inch square cards. It's a great way to avoid wasting cardstock. I've finished the templates for the custom envelopes--with the help of the SU five-in-one Card-Cover template. I just wish I knew enough computer-wise to tell you how to get a good printable version of them by saving these pictures (if you know, I'd absolutely love to be clued in!) ;0)

If you want a printable version just leave a comment with your email or email me at mmmccart@sfu.ca & I'll send it to you.

Happy Crafting!

P.S. The card was super easy to make. The stamp is Riot of Petals Background, embossed with black craft ink & clear e.p. and I've water-coloured it with pretty in Pink wash on an aqua-painter. For steps to distressing ribbon <--click that link.

It's gorgeous..!! Me and my family are planning a surprise birthday party for my sister, and since we're on a bit tight budget, we decide to give budget portion from invitation and decoration a little bit more to the food. Seeing your guide in making this DIY envelope is so easy, that I decided that I want to make it for the surprise party invitation. Could you please please send me the template to ong_darkblue@yahoo.com? Thank you soooo very much :)
