We recently received a huge collection of vintage crafting magazines and books. While they are fun to look at, many of the styles are a little bit outdated. Some even use supplies I've never seen! So, why not take these cool old magazines and turn them into something new... like envelopes!
What you'll need: Tacky Glue, An Old Magazine or Book, Scissors, and a Postcard.
Tear out a sheet and use your postcard to make a template. The paper will essentially be cut into the shape of a heart... read ahead to see more about how this works before you start cutting.
The postcard should sit near the bottom of the heart. That bottom triangle will form the flap of the envelope.
Fold in the sides of the paper
Fold down the top of the "heart" onto the postcard.
Use tacky glue to glue the inside flaps to the front of the envelope. Get good coverage to ensure a tight hold (just make sure you don't ooze glue out onto your postcard).
Fold over the triangle flap and voila! You have an envelope! Stop into Gray's General Store to see our stack of envelopes and pick up all of the supplies you need to make your own.
