Yesterday I shared a quick and easy gift card envelope. Well today I made another one and this one is even easier! I’m continuing my patterned paper stash busting and letting this piece of paper from an old Simple Stories paper pad do all the work :D The envelope is made from some Bazzill card (7 ¼” x 5 ½”, scored at 2 ⅛” and 5″) and then two Stitched Rectangle die cuts from the paper pad wrapped around. First the striped paper under the flap and on the back and then the second grid paper on the flap and over the back. The two rectangles overlap to give a nice finish on the back of the envelope. The ‘Christmas’ is die cut from Butter Mints card using the Christmas Blessings die and attached to the side of a twine bow which keeps the envelope closed.
That’s all there is to it! I think this takes 5 minutes most to make – cut, score, die cut, die cut, die cut, stick, stick, stick and tie. Done! I’ve left a little space around the ‘Christmas’ as I intend to hand write a message to the recipient there – I don’t even need to make a tag for this one :D
