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!!
