Well I got this idea from our friend Nina. She was making these super cute envelopes out of scrapbook paper and I really wanted to make some! So I came home and made some! They are so so SO simple and add a personal touch to your envelopes.
You will need: An old magazine, scissors, an envelope, a glue stick and a Sharpie.
Tear out some magazine pages that you like.
Carefully pull the envelope apart. I failed at this miserably but was able to make it work.
Trace the envelope on a magazine page.
Cut the envelope shape out.
Turn the envelope over as well as the magazine cut-out. Place the magazine cut-out on top of the envelope and fold the envelope back together (with the magazine cut-out on the inside).
Unfold everything and separate the magazine cut-out from the envelope.
Glue the bottom flap down to the two side flaps.
And you've made your own envelope!
The great thing about making these envelopes our of magazine pages is that the envelopes have a character all of their own. And it'd be hard to make two of the same envelopes.
