Easy DIY Envelope Craft under 5 Minutes (Free Template)

Easy DIY Envelope Craft under 5 Minutes

HAY, how art you? The world is being digitalised more and more each day. This makes me wonder, will paper envelopes become obsolete one day? There is something precious about the process of sealing a card or letter in an envelope, writing the postage address, affixing the stamp and sending it at the post office. This month, I decided to design a few printable envelope templates. These are smaller in size –  which make them perfect as embellishments on journal spreads, and storing tiny stickers, craft supplies or a secret note-to-self. Scroll down for the download link for this free printable and to read more about this easy DIY envelope craft!
