As I was scrolling Pinterest one night, I can across an adorable Valentine’s Day felt envelope that I fell in love with!
So I decided to try and make it for my daughter. I headed to my local Michaels to pick up a few items, luckily I had most on hand.
You will need:
Felt 9×12 (I used the stiffened one but the soft one I feel would work too)
Hot glue gun
Thread and needle (optional)
You will also need, a ruler, pencil, iron and scissors ✂️.
Start off by cutting one of the felt pieces in half. This will be the front of the envelope.
I took a lid from a bowl and traced it onto the felt to get the opening of the envelope. Set it aside for later.
With the other piece of felt fold it in half, this will be the back and top of the envelope. I measured about 1 inch above the fold and drew my mark to cut the flap.
After both pieces are cut, take the fabric tape and place it along the end of the edges (sides and bottom) and carefully iron the felt until the tape is bonded and the edges are sealed.
From here you can add embellishments, trim whatever you choose. I decided to add stitching, I just used a regular needle and thread but if I could redo it I would probably choose a thicker thread. It is time consuming, but totally worth it!
I thought the inside was looking a little boring so I added some trim I had laying around.
I am happy with the way it turned out. It you want to hang it you can add ribbon like it did or leave it as it.
What I love most about these envelopes is that you can customize them however you choose!
If you happened to make one, make sure to tag me on Instagram (@justcreatetoday) I would love to see yours!
