#Simply G45 Gift Card Envelopes

By Kasia Bogatko


“Today I have for you an idea for spring envelopes. They will work perfectly as a pack of gift cards or for money.


Policy Envelopes—ATC Black


To make it as simple as possible, I used ATC police envelopes as a base. Of course, if you would like to give something bigger, such as a coupon, invitation, use a larger envelope.



I used here butterflies from one of the pages from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection, they have various sizes and colors, you will surely find one that will fit your vision. I stuck the butterflies on a piece of moss to add more spring and special character to the envelopes.



I do not know if you like fussy cutting, but I'm not really. Butterfly antennae are especially problematic – I  cut them off by accident mostly. So I have an idea for you that will revive butterflies. Just a piece of ordinary wire, from which we form the body and antennas. The most convenient way to do this is by wrapping a wire around a stick or a thin brush. Butterflies prepared in this way look definitely much more interesting.




I made a video for you so that you can see more accurately how I prepared these little gift envelopes.
