Christmas Craft #21: Printed Envelope Card

The inspiration for this Christmas card comes from old airmail letters where the message was written on the inside of the envelope.

You need-

1. Scrapbook pages (cardstock weight is best)- Michaels

2. Red stickers– School or stationary supply stores

3. Snippet of pine

4. Scissors, hole punch, pencil, red pen, glue stick

Instructions-

Take an envelope and carefully open it up all the way. This will be your pattern piece. Using your pattern, trace in pencil the outline onto a sheet of printed paper (mine shows wintertime pine trees). Cut it out. Make folds where necessary. Write your letter in red ink.

Take a separate sheet of white paper and do a simple holiday greeting. Cut that out and punch a small hole at the end. Slip this through the pine stem.

Seal envelope with a red sticker. (Apply extra glue to sticker if needed).

For the front of the envelopes use white labels to write friend’s name and address.
