Hello! I’m back today with an envelope transformation project to share with you. I will show you how to make this card storage gift box and treat box using A7 envelopes! Now your envelopes are not only for two dimensional use for sending letters but also for good for storing yummy treats and other bigger items! The envelope card box is perfect for storing 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cards and matching envelopes.
Send Valentine’s cards set as gift in this handmade card storage box!
Or filled it up with sweet treats for your valentine!
– Place envelope horizontally and score at 1/2″ on both sides of the envelope then rotate the envelope vertically and score at 1/2″ also.
– Fold along scored lines. Open the envelope flap and cut the excess as shown in picture below. Make a small cut at the bottom of the envelope as well.
– Open folds to form a box, glue the side flaps at the bottom of envelope.
– Embellish envelope with patterned paper
To make the treat box, simply leave the envelope flap unfold and decorate it with patterned paper and other embellishments. Also made a card using the 6×6 paper pad cutout and some water-colored hearts using Gansai Watercolor (this watercolor is fabulous by the way!).
Hope you enjoy this Valentine’s project I’m sharing with you, have a super crafty day! –Alexia
