At the moment I am packing up my house to prepare for my big move to Melbourne. It's so hard to find anything in this maze of boxes. I needed an envelope for my giveaways to be posted, and so I thought "Why not make a pretty one?"What you'll need:
Plain coloured paper (I chose pink lined)
Pretty picture page from a magazine (Frankie and Peppermint work best as they are the thickest)
Take your pretty magazine page and clean up an edges. Fold in half but leave a 5cm gap at the top. This is so you have a lid for the envelope.
Now fold over each side of the envelope by 1-2cms. Glue in place.
Be sure to leave the top section (in your envelope lid) unglued. This makes it easier to fit items in the envelope.
Get your plain paper and cut out two rectangles of different sizes. Larger for the front of the envelope ad smaller for the back. Glue in place.
Get your radical mail and slide inside your ever so awesome envelope.
Fold your lid all the way over and glue in place.
There you have it. One awesome envelope to send a lucky giveaway winner. These take no time at all and look awesome. I made over 100 of these guys for my wedding invitations out of comic books. People loved them and said how excited they were to see it in their letter box. Can't wait to see what you guys send in them.
