Lined Envelopes (With Templates)
I've been meaning to make matching stationary for a long time and I finally took the time to do it yesterday!
As I was looking for templates for envelopes I was amazed at how difficult it was to find the different sizes I wanted, so I took apart some envelopes I had at home and traced them! I thought I would share them with you. I threw in a liner template for each one as well. Just click the little template photos and it should take you to a full-size version that you can print. :o)
The larger templates were cut in half so that you can print them easily. Once you've printed them, trace one (you don't need to trace the edge that says "flip") and then flip over to trace the other. Then fold and glue!
I hope you have fun with them! The ones photographed were all made with 12"x12" scrap booking paper, so if you have one of those great stacks of patterned paper it can be really fun to make matching color combos. Although, I think a simpler look would be lovely too. My sister-in-law suggested craft paper to me, and I love that thought. Wouldn't that be lovely? She even made some using a paper bag. Now that's cool.
Phew! It feels so good putting an idea up there that isn't a sewing project! Once in a while I step back and go "Oh yeah! There's a whole other world of crafting away from my sewing table!". I know that not all of you are sewers (sewists? Sew-mysters?) and I sometimes feel a little guilty that I don't share more non-sewing ideas.
Have a great day!!
& you're crafty as well ! :D I love these! I always have something fun to make every week because of you! Yaay you! :D :)ReplyDelete

Love the idea of matching cards and envelopes!ReplyDelete
Thanks for this! Dd and I enjoy making cards every few months for thank yous and such- it'll be nice to have some templates for matching envelopes. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Thank you for these templates, I have spent way too long on goggle trying to find envelope templates too. This will make card making so much easier!ReplyDelete
And I love your "hi" greeting card and matching envelope.
This is great! I really like making cards, but I never even considered matching envelopes. Thank you for the templates.ReplyDelete
This is great! I make my business cards from scapbooking stacks so that my cards arent always plain and boring. Ill definetley be using this idea for my thank you cards. Thanks Disney!ReplyDelete
Once again...you've inspired me!ReplyDelete
You may already know this, but wallpaper stores will give you their old sample books for free, which opens up a world of possibilities for envelopes! Usually the size of the book pages is plenty for envelopes.ReplyDelete
I love making my own envelopes! I usually just find one to trace, but how nice to have templates of all different sizes. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thanks for this- I have never made my own envelopes, but it seems like fun.ReplyDelete
I remember a few years back I opened up an old envelope and traced it on some new paper to make a new envelope...than I painted the new envelope before sticking it ...it was fun! the matching cards look real cool...thank you for the templates!ReplyDelete
so cute :)ReplyDelete
I wanted to do something like this around Valentine's Day but I was unsure how to start. I love that you did all the work for me and better then I ever could! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I love these templates. What a great idea.ReplyDelete
Ooh, these look so happy! I will have to keep this in mind. I love having fun envelopes on hand!ReplyDelete
So fun!! Love this!ReplyDelete
What I want to know is how long this took you... not sure I would have had the patience to do this, so props to you! :)
Haha, Eliza, funny you should ask that. I thought this would be a super-quick post, but due to certain four-year-old interruptions, it took pretty much my whole day. But it shouldn't take long for you guys to print out and make! :o)ReplyDelete
I love these!! But I am having a problem - they are not printing full-sized. Any suggestions?ReplyDelete
awesome and so lovely! TFSReplyDelete
Kristy: is your page setup set for horizontal? I forgot to mention it, but you may need to change that. Otherwise your printer will make size it down to fit. So just click the sideways page when you're printing. Hope that solves it!ReplyDelete
Aww! I love these! Thanks for the templates!ReplyDelete
What a great idea! I've always thought it would be cool to make envelopes and cards. Now I know how. Thanks!ReplyDelete
This is so fabulous! What a great idea. I can't wait to make some! =)ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, these are wonderful! Thanks for the idea. :)ReplyDelete
one more beautiful what other!ReplyDelete
I might try it out and change it for my own Gift Card envelopes.ReplyDelete
I can't figure out how to print these. When I click on them, it takes me to Pinterest. What am I doing wrong?ReplyDelete
Same here :(Delete
