HOW TO USE THE MINI ENVELOPE TEMPLATE
This is one of the easiest DIY projects I have on my blog! If you can cut and use a glue stick then you can make a mini envelope! I love simple projects and kids can help too.
STEP ONE: PRINT TEMPLATE
The first step is to print off the mini envelope template.
Fill in the form below to get the template and access to my entire library of free printables.
I would suggest you print the template on the colored paper you want to use for the envelope. It will save you the time of having to trace the template!
Fill in the form above. After you submit the form, you’ll receive an email from “Wondermom Wannabe” with a direct link to the printable library where you’ll find the link to the printable above as well as all of my other free printables. If you do not see the email in your inbox within a few minutes, check your spam folder.
The most likely place will be in your computer’s Downloads folder. You can also select “Downloads” in your browser menu to see a list of your downloads, then simply select “Show in folder” below the file name to see where it is stored on your computer.
You’ll need a program that supports PDFS, like Adobe Acrobat (which is free). Open the program, click File > Print. Select your printer and set the number of copies you want to print. Double check your print preview, then click print.
STEP TWO: CUT
Now that you have the template printed it is time to cut it out.
STEP THREE: FOLD
The template has numbers on it to make it easy to fold this correctly.
Fold “1” then apply some glue on top of it. Then you will fold “2” over it and stick it with “1”.
Next, you will fold “3” and glue it to complete the basic envelope.
STEP FOUR: ADD STRING
It is time to add the string or floss you are using. This will allow you to clasp the envelope.
Cut a 4-5 inch long section of string and glue it to the back top portion of the envelope.
STEP FIVE: ADD BEADS
Take 2 very small pearl beads. Glue one on the middle top part of the envelope and the other on the middle of the envelopes top fold.
This allows you to bring the string around the front and loop it around the beads for a cute closure.
All you have left to do is decide how to use these around the house.
