DIY Envelopes Made with Cricut

Create custom envelopes for any occasion with a Cricut machine!

I love to get snail mail and to send snail mail.  I still get excited when I go to my mailbox and there is a personal note or card just for me!  {or my kids!}

Little Guy had a birthday celebration the day before Easter and we wanted to send out personal Thank You notes.  I had a birthday picture that I personalized and printed out using a Smilebox template {if you print it yourself using the from home option you can choose to print just one page as opposed to all the pages}.  I used 4 x 6 HP photo paper for the Thank You photo.  I didn't want to stop there and just use a plain envelope so I made my own using my Cricut Plaintin SchoolBook cartridge and some K & Company Scrapbook paper.  I set the dial size to 6 inches on my Cricut {the size I needed to accommodate the longest side of my card} and cut away.  I scored the edges, folded and sealed using Scotch Scrapbooker's Glue and sealed the envelope with Smash Tape from K & Company.  I was so pleased with how they turned out.

If you don't have a Cricut, Silhouette, etc., there are many free downloadable envelope templates...just do an internet search for the size you need.

    These look really nice! I never thought about using double-sided paper to make homemade envelopes. What a great idea! My girls love to make their own envelopes and we also like to send notes via snail-mail. I'll have to look into some of these products. 🙂 Thanks for posting this idea!
