gift envelope

Good day to you!
I made a box type gift envelope that can make your gifting unique and special. You can use it for gifting money, gift card, chocolates etc. I used Papericious Ephemera pack and brown card stock. I decorated with hand made flowers and die cuts.

Here are a few pictures.

I have done a photo tutorial for the envelope. The dimensions are what I used to create, but it can be changed as you require. Always make a template with a scrap paper and then make the final one.

This envelope has two parts a box and a cover.

For the box
  • Take a card stock and trim it to 8.5" x 7.5" in size.
  • On the 8.5" side score .5" from both the ends.

  • On 7.5" side score at 3.5" and 4"

  • Cut at 3.5" and 4" up to the half inch mark.

  • Now fold at the score lines. I did not remove the small flaps since I thought it will give a perfect closure at the corners and strength.  
  • Fold and glue the side flaps.

The cover. 
  • Trim a card stock to 11" x 8"
  • On the 11" side score at 3 5/8", 4 1/8", 7 3/4" and 8 1/4"
  • The remaining 2 3/4" at the end will be the flap. 
  • On the flap end, I marked 1" down from the tip and drew an offset 'V' shape. You can create any shape for the flap. 
  • Decorate with pattern paper and embellishments.
  • I used magnets for closure. If you are using them, stick it before you paste your pattern paper.
Hope the method is clear. This is the first photo tutorial I have done. Suggestions are welcome so that I can improve. Do leave your comments below.
