used for the Elegant Envelope

This is what you’ll need to get started:

  • The template for Envelope Nº3.
  • A printed design with an area covering the template (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 elegant envelope final size is 20,4 x 9 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.
