handmade envelopes + tag details


if you read through my post yesterday, i mentioned showing you a little more detail on the envelopes and tags i created. some of you might be like, cool, you made paper envelopes. but if you are obsessed with paper and floral prints as much as i am, you will obviously have a high appreciation for the next few photos ;)


all envelopes were hand cut using some templates i picked up at paper source, you can get the envelope templates here and the liners here. i can't stop myself from buying paper to make envelopes. crazy? totally... they turned out so darn cute though, i have to make more. plus i have a thing for finding fun paper.. so i was thinking of creating some large batches of these in cool combos and putting them up in my etsy shop, what do ya think? they'd be perfect for small dinner parties to weddings to even something pretty for organizing ordinary things like receipts.


also. still drooling over white ink on bright paper. my fave.



enjoy the weekend friends!

  6. These are beautiful! I used to make envelopes as a kid to send my pen pal. But I must say, these are WAY cuter :) Going to have to give homemade envelopes another try!

  8. These are beautiful! Do you happen to know if the post office has any restrictions on stuff like this? Is it safe to mail? I know there are probably size restrictions, but what about the design? Is anything fair game? Thanks! :)

    1. pretty sure you can send what you want as long as you use a solid sticker for the address label and that is legible. good question though!! i'm going to look into it.

  11. Just found your blog! Can we be best friends!? LOL. I absolutely LOVE these envelopes and am also completely obsessed with paper. I could spend forever in paper source or any stationary store. I am just usually unsure of what to do with it!. LOVE these and would love to purchase from your etsy shop!

  12. Why would you need to buy an envelope template when you can easily use an envelope you already have. I make these all the time and have never purchased a template.

  13. How did you learn to get such pretty handwriting?!
