The Perfect Sentimental Gift

Gift-giving can be hard but it doesn’t have to be! Using junk mail envelopes (we all have it), you can create a beautiful folio to give as a memory-filled gift! This is a great way to recycle and be creative at the same time! And with an added surprise envelope, you can include a gift card for the recipient. It’s that easy! Ready to get started? Let’s have a look!

How To Build It

For this simple craft, all you’ll need is two junk mail envelopes and a notecard envelope. Once you have that, the rest is up to you! You can grab your favorite paper, sequins, gel pens, sentiment card, glitter, ribbon, etc. Have fun with it!

To start off, you’re going to take your two-letter envelopes, flap-up, and stack the straight side of one against the lip of the other and glue it down. Take note that when you do this you don’t want to glue it any farther than the lip! If you do, you will end up closing off the pocket, and you’re going to want access to that pocket later!
