Crafts/DIY: Heart Envelopes

   
    


Valentine's Day craft part deux.

Last time, I shared with you some crafty heart origami for letters. Then I posted a couple of links where you can print some free gift wrappers straight to your printer.

Now, here's a quick and easy tutorial on creating an envelope from a heart. I used the mod poinsettia pattern from Paper Crave.

    is it possible for you to put up a template of your heart?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I actually did not have a template. I just hand-drew it. :) But that's a good idea. I'll consider making a heart template soon. Watch out for it.

  15. Did you use a heart from a Cricut cartridge? If so which one?

  19. Hi! I was hoping to use this for wedding invitations, do you know how big the heart needs to be? Or if I used a 12"x12" paper to cut out the heart how big the invetation could be?

    Thanks,

    1. Hi Julie. My suggestion is that you cut out a rectangle template with a size that you want, then draw a heart around it. :-)

    Is this just a regular sized printing paper? or can you use any size???

    1. You can use any size; of course, the smaller your paper size, the smaller your folded envelope will be.
