DIY: Tiny envelope template, for little things!

I’ve always gift wrapped my smaller jewellery items in dinky 7 x 10 cm brown envelopes, which I found in our local newsagents. They’re perfect, but I thought recently they could do with a bit more colour. That’s when I remembered I had some gorgeous floral paper stashed away in a cupboard; not too many minutes later I got to work and created a template and thought I’d share it this week.

Click here to download the envelope template. In addition to the printed template, you’ll need:

  1. Pretty paper of your choice.
  2. Scalpel, ruler and cutting mat (scissors will be ok too)
  3. Pritt stick glue
  4. Pencil

Start by cutting out your template, I like to use a scalpel here for precision, but scissors are fine if you don’t have one. Then roughly cut a square big enough from your chosen paper and draw around the template onto the plain side of the paper.

With the scalpel, cut around the solid lines and score through the dashed lines lightly. Dab glue where indicated, fold, and you’re done. You could add to the fun by decorating with washi tape, twine, anything you like. I hope you find these useful, even if you’re not packaging up gifts or product orders, how about sending a tiny letter to your penpal!?

    But… 7×10 inches isn’t that tiny?? It’s kind of standard?? Am I missing something??

      Eek, woops – that’s a typo. I meant cm, obviously! :)

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking
    about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it
