Easy DIY Envelope Craft under 5 Minutes (Free Template)
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!

DIY Envelope Craft – Supplies You’ll Need
- Paper of choice (e.g. cream paper, kraft paper, vellum paper, or simply regular paper)
- Glue (I’m using this glue tape)
DIY Envelope Craft – Easy Steps
Print out the free templates on paper of your choice.
Cut away the outlines to get the templates.
Fold the four flaps inward with the blank side facing up, and the side with design facing down.
Apply glue along the diagonal edges of one of the triangular section.
Fold the non-triangular sides inward first, and paste the triangular section with glue on them.
Seal the top flap, or leave the envelope unsealed to keep your little trinkets!
