Use these cute Valentines Envelopes to send your love a note or little gift. You could also use them to package Heart Day Gifts for your kid's or their teachers! And honestly you could take out the Valentines theme and use them for other occasions such as Birthdays or Christmas!
Flip the envelope over to the front, this is where you can be creative! Use what you have on hand, scrap felt pieces or perhaps you picked up some fun Valentines Day embellishments you'd like to use!
The sky is the limit, decorate the front of the envelope as much or as little as you'd like!
Some of your additions can by sewn on by the machine or hand stitched depending what they are. Once you have pinned what you are decorating on the front, you can take the pins off the sides to open it up and sew them on.
I used my Big Shot and some die cuts to make some of my own embellishments out of felt and then I sewed them on with the machine!
Fold your envelopes back up and pin the sides again. Because we're working with felt and the edges don't fray, we can just sew up the edges without having to sewing wrong sides together and flip it back out like some of our other projects.
Now depending on how you want to fasten your envelopes, we have a couple options now. Check out the pictures (a,b,c left to right) if you are visual like me! :)
a) No fastener: you can sew the edges and then iron a proper fold so that it will stay down.
b) A button: hand stitch a button onto the bottom, back side of your felt and make a button hole with your scissors to fit the button
c) Velcro: Either sticky back or sew on a piece to each end of the back so it fastens.
