Great Idea: Make your own envelopes for keepsakes from used dryer sheets.
Jennifer from Sunny Vanilla executed this creative idea that was the brainchild of Paula Spahr. Let me show you her works of art:
How to Make Your Own Envelopes
Just a few steps to success for this craft project:
- she ironed the sheets,
- folded them over,
- cut the sides of the envelop flap (see picture), and
- sew a decorative line at approx. 1/4” of the edge.
- Then, she used that same contrast color for the card inside. Love that red-white striped card.
Perfectly Easy, Creative Recycling Project
Make a stack of them at a time, so as to make it worth your while to get the sewing machine out.
Jennifer made the dryer sheet envelops for (Valentine) greeting cards. However, I can see a million other uses for these handmade envelopes, either embellished with lot of decoupage, or plain. Jennifer added a pretty, simple and nice button.
