A homemade Christmas card envelope is a great way to add a touch of creativity and personalization to your cards this year. All you will need is paper, glue or tape, and any crafty additions you want to make like stickers or paint rollers to dress it up a bit.
Step 1: Choose a sturdy paper like construction paper or get really creative and use a piece of wrapping paper. Lay your card down on the paper and cut each side about hald an inch from the card’s side edges.
Step 2: Next, you’ll want to cut the top of the paper, making sure there is enough room to cover the card with an extra inch to create a flap for sealing.
Step 3: Put your card aside, and fold your paper in half, leaving about an inch for the flap. Double check that your card fits inside the envelope properly before gluing.
Step 4: Once your sizing is correct, glue or tape the envelope’s sides together and let dry.
Step 5: If you want to decorate your envelope’s exterior, consider using holiday stickers, decoration rollers, finger paints, rubber stamps, or markers for an extra touch of personalization.
Step 6: Once your designs are dry and set, place your card in your homemade Christmas card envelope, fold down the final flap, and use stickers or tape to seal it.
