Nautical Envelope Tutorial

Hi friends!
I dont know about you guys, but I am LOVING the new, nautical trend. It inspired me to make something a little different with this Petal Card. I turned it into an envelope that is perfect for a small gift, some candy bars or a card!
Here is what you need to make this project:
(And where I got my supplies from) White Petal Card
Polka dot patterned paper (PTI)
Navy polka dot ribbon ( May Arts)
Nautical stamps ( Wilson Designs-Nauti-Cool)
Button (Michaels)
Yellow and black ink (SU)
Navy blue cardstock (
Brown bag cardstock (
Scrap of paper or cardstock
Paper cutter or ruler and scissors
Pinking shears
Glue roller
Repositionable adhesive
Hot Glue
Foam tape
  • Open petal card and fold the two sides in.
  • Glue the bottom flap of the card to the two sides.
  • Stamp the sun onto the bottom flap using the scrap of paper or cardstock to keep the ink from getting onto the side flap.
  • Cut a 8 ½ x 11 strip of navy cardstock that is 1 ½ inches wide.
  • Using the pinking shears trim a small edge off the strip to make the pattern.
  • Wrap strip around the card and adhere with the glue roller.
  • Stamp ship sails onto card base and paper piece the sails using the foam tape for dimension.
  • Stamp ship bottom, cut out and adhere using the foam tape.
  • Attach pattern paper to the top flap using the glue roller and trim around flap.
  • Using the repositionable adhesive, glue and close the flap.
  • Tie a ribbon bow and glue to the flap using the hot glue.
  • Glue on the anchor button.
  • Fill with goodies!
Hope you give it a try!

  1. I LOVE IT!! The rich colors really enhance the look. Thanks for the idea—it makes me wonder what would be enclosed in such an adorable envelope… to Catalina? a day of whale watching? NICE.
