She made them with scrapbook paper. That brought back memories of making these myself. I've always loved to have cute envelopes to send real mail. Sometimes I address them in calligraphy, sometimes I pull out some fun rubber stamps, and yes, sometimes a sticker or two. (Embrace your inner child...)
(By the way, I have a LOT of pads of 12x12 scrapbooking paper that I've been collecting through the years, and from the look of my stash, you would think I was saving it for some future crafting apocalypse. I'm really happy that my daughter is actually using hers.)
It's easy to make the envelopes. Here's how:
Carefully take a plain envelope apart, and use it as your template. (No need to buy an envelope template, as I'm sure you have some different sized envelopes around the house. With that said, I do have some cute little envelope stencils.)
Trace around the unfolded envelope onto your pretty paper.
Cut out, fold, and glue with a strong gluestick. (When you buy a greeting card, instead of using the envelope that comes with it, consider making one to coordinate with the card. Just use the original envelope as your template.)
This is the paper pad my daughter used.
You can also dress up your envelope with pretty stamps. I love these songbirds.
