Slim Gift Envelope – Farmhouse

By Teresa Cruz aka Andor Violeta

“Hi everyone!

“Today i have very simple slim envelope to share as inspiration for this month challenge. If you have a party, you can always prepare a gift envelope to give money, gift card, tickets of a concert, gift code, a letter… anything that is small and you can put on a envelope to give. I did use an old collection – Farmhouse – but you can recreate this with any collection you want. Maybe you can also create many envelopes and combine them together to make an album. I hope i can make one album with this very soon. Do you think it’s a good idea? Me too!!

I did prepared a video tutorial that you can see how i made this envelope, start to finish! It’s at the end of this blog post, but first let’s take a look at some photos!”




This collection is really amazing and everything matches perfectly. Try to combine embellishments on your projects to make them pop even more, with color and texture. 




This is a masculine envelope and it’s really easy to make. I started with a pattern and solids paper from the collection, and i choose the solid in black. This solid part gives me the opportunity to create contrast and add more elements on top of my en without the fear of becoming 



The sentiment that i used isn’t form Graphic 45, but it marches perfectly.




Chipboard pieces are a quick way fo make a closure for the envelope, that we can open and close many times!!




This was so fun to put together, I hope you find this inspiring. Enjoy the full tutorial I prepared for you and don’t forget to share with us your creations!!
