How to… make a Paper Envelope

A simple and quick How To again this week: Paper Craft is back! (I still have a few more up my sleeve). This time I am showing you how to make a lovely paper envelope:  no cutting, no glueing!

Great for home made cards (especially if you made on of the the pop art cards from my last post) or to add a tag to a presents. Make it out of newspaper, wrapping paper, the kid’s drawings. You choose!

 (PS At the end of the vlog I “claim” to have used one of Red Ted’s drawings… it is in fact one that I coloured in during a drawing session with him… NOT trying to pretend that I have a child genius!)

  1. Oh! That’s brilliant! Thanks for sharing 🙂


  2. ooh, you worked it out?!!
    Perfect, the ‘angel stickers’ can be found at and are an essential part of your eco-kit as you can take these to re-use ANY envelope – although, I love these envelopes you’ve made Maggy – brilliant. Will be trying this with the kids this weekend – Grandma will love a letter from the boys with one of these envelopes



  3. love this! I use to do this “back in the day” when I would actually write letters to my friends and family in Chile. May have to start doing it again soon! x
