How to make an envelope

Do you need a quick envelope for your card but you don’t have any time to run to the store?

I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten to grab one or I made a card and didn’t have any mor envelopes to mail the card in. Making your own is SUPER easy and you can make them any size you need!

What you will need:

  • paper
  • scissors
  • glue or tape
  • maybe a pencil

Place you card on top of the paper sideways like the picture.


Cardstock is a must in any crafters supply closet.

Fold the bottom up and fold the side if necessary to achieve a square.


Cards are something we use all the time! but when you make your cards how do you mail them or give them? This pack of 50 has every color you could need!

Cut out the square


Fold the sides in


If the bottom has a point we can cut that flat to make it look better. But this one came out even.


You can glue the sides to the bottom or tape it closed. Whichever you have on hand. I had tape right in front of me when I made this so that is what I used. The glue looks a little better but if you have fancy tape you could add color and character to your envelope. 😀


Now you have a custom sized envelope for your card!

What have you made today?
