used for the Classic Envelope

This is what you’ll need to get started:

  • The template for Envelope Nº1.
  • A printed design with an area of 20x20cm (A4 or Letter sized print will work fine).
  • A pencil to trace the template.
  • A pair of scissors to cut the envelope template and the print.
  • Glue or doble sided tape (my personal favorite) for the indicated parts.

The classic envelope final size is 15,5 x 10,5 cm.

Step 1

Trace the template onto the print.

I used ink so it would show in the picture, but you can use pencil (and then erase the lines after you cut your print).

Cut the shape you just traced.

It should look similar to the one shown on the picture.

Fold side number 3 before applying any glue. Be sure to press the crease so it fits in place.

Unfold the bottom side and apply glue or doble sided tape on top of flips number 1 and number 2.

Step 5

Fold the bottom side with care so it’s aligned and sticked to the sides of the envelope. 

Put your hand inside the envelope so it doesn’t stick to the inside.
