Wallpapered Envelopes

Emily from Design and Nonsense inspired me to make some wonderful envelopes.
This weekend seems to be jam packed with celebrations, and I thought now was the time to get crafty.
First off the wonderful women over at Allied Paints supplied
me with an entire book of free wallpaper samples for FREE.
Did I mention that they were free.
Sorry but I was just so excited!
They obviously were no longer using this book of samples.
So, as you may have guessed I am using the wallpaper samples to make these beautiful envelopes.



The How To:
1. Find an old envelope that you won't be sad to loose.
Undo the folds, and now you have a template.


2. Trace around the edge and then cut.


3. Simply enough you are going to fold around the edges, and then tape down where desired.
Make sure you don't tape it completely down. You still want
to be able to fit the card in.

4. Now you envelope is ready!

Obviously you can use paper, wallpaper, or whatever fun kind of paper you find to do this craft.
Now off to celebrate.

Happy Birthday to my brother,
 and
 Happy Anniversary to my parentals.
