DIY: Folding envelopes

wooden envelope templates
A while ago I bought two wooden envelope templates and a set of graphic paper in the lovely webshop of Paper Stories. I intended to use the templates during the creative whirl of my staycation, but because of the lovely weather nothing came of that plan. However, my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last weekend and I that was the occasion I was waiting for.

The graphic paper turned out to have prints on both sides, so when folding the envelopes the insides of them showed another print.

This is really easy: put the wooden template on the paper and trace around the edges.

The instructions are even pictured on the template!

Folding is done within seconds. I used a measurer to help me making straight folds.
Done. You could make labels or tags with the leftover scraps, great for gifts.
