Guest Blogger | Ashley from After Nine to Five

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope the beginning of your weekend has been going well! I've got another DIY for your weekend and this one comes from the lovely Ashley from After Nine to Five. She's here to show you how to make some awesome DIY envelopes to make your hand written letter even more special! Now, without without further adieu...

Photobucket

A super easy project with only a few supplies, and less than 10 minutes.

Photobucket

Any size of paper { square or rectangle }, Rubber Cement, Scissors, Sticker(s)

Photobucket

Fold the paper in half, hamburger style. (Does anyone say that anymore?)

Photobucket

On one half of the fold, measure 1" in on all three sides

Photobucket

Cut the inch off on all three sides

Photobucket

On the top portion, fold in the flaps so the side of the paper (top & bottom) lines up again

Photobucket

Glue the flaps, leaving approximately 1" without glue on the opposite side of the fold (The open inch will be the top flap that will be sealed later)

Photobucket

Fold the paper back together, pressing firmly along the sides to ensure that the flaps stick to the bottom portion

Photobucket

Fill with goodies + seal by gluing the top flap down or with a sticker

Photobucket

Address, stamp, + mail out!
