I made three different envelopes...nothing planned and my pictures suck but I think they turned out fine.
was to hold stickers...I cut a couple of stickers from a sheet and slipped them in envelopes for the two days Gregory will be getting stickers.
I traced a DVD case, cut it out and folded so that one half is a little larger than the other half
I placed glue using a glue stick around the edges
Poor picture but as you can see it's a little Christmas envelope. After slipping the stickers inside I dabbed a little glue on the lip to close the envelope.
was to hold Hershey bars. I did two days of Hershey bars
Again I cut out a rectangle, I folded it in half, cut one side off a little and then cut the corners off of the other side.
I glued the edges again with a glue stick.
I punched a couple of holes in the flap
was for a couple of KitKats...Gregory discovered these on Halloween and loves them!
I folded the paper in half an punched holes around the three open sides. (In hindsight I should have punched holes all the way around...I think it would look better in the end)
I weaved ribbon in and out of the hole punches
Before I closed it up I slipped the KitKat and the slip of paper that has a little message/reminder of the True meaning of Christmas into the envelope.
I punched a single hole in the middle of the closed side...brought both sides of the ribbon together. Tied them into a bow (They ended up on different sides of the envelope...there are ways to avoid that!) and curled the ends with scissors.
I was pretty excited about the way these little envelopes turned out....maybe I'll stop buying those little Gift Card holders!
