Hi there Folks!
What a horrible wet few days we have had, but a great opportunity to get some serious crafting done.
I have been pretty busy making Toppers and Cards, but broke off to do another tutorial for you as i have been asked so many times how to make the Doily envelopes.
This time round i have done lots of photo's and clear instructions on how to make them.
If you have any probs please let me know and i will help where i can.
so here goes....
and a sheet of coloured paper cut to 19.5cm square.
I used a corner punch to round off the corners of my paper.
Lay the sheet of paper over the Doily to make sure it fits neatly about 1/4 cm inside the Doily.
On the reverse side of the Doily i used a spray adhesive and gave it a light spray to make the Doily nice and tacky and then layed my paper onto the Doily and pressed it down firmly.
The next step is to fold the Doily and paper.
As you can see from the above picture i have made the creases and added some double sided tape to the side flaps the tape should be on the inner side of the flaps.
sellotape will do the job just as well.
DO NOT remove the backing from the double sided tape as it will stick closed if you do.
then you simply pop your card, Invitation or letter into the envelope and hey presto! you have a really pretty lace envelope.
I used a piece of double sided tape to seal my envelope closed.
Above is the envelope closed from the back
Above is the Envelope from the front
I used a sticky label to put my address on.
I hope that i have explained everything easily enough for you all....Happy Envelope making.
