Pretty Envelopes




These pretty mailers are an inexpensive alternative to the boring white plain envelopes I couldn't find last week.  I had made my dad a card and after unsuccessfully searching high and low for an envelope, I resorted to crafting my own.  Then while at the local craft store I saw that 12X12 scrapbook paper was on sale- 5/$1.00 and spent a few hours making a stockpile.  If you've never made an envelope before, it is super easy.  Carefully undo one of those boring plain ones, trace it onto patterned paper, cut it out, fold it up, and glue it together!  I made different sizes by adjusting the scale when copying the pattern.
