Heart Envelopes

11 Feb

Today, I’m mailing the Valentine’s that I made last week. I crafted some brown paper hearts and turned them into envelopes. It took some trouble shooting along the way but they ended up looking great!

First, I bought a roll of craft paper at Walmart: under $5

IMG_1034After I folded it, it actually looks better if you do it this way (folding the top down first and then the sides in):

IMG_3873Finally, fold down the point and tape!
