So, how about a tutorial AND template for the first Every Other Tuesday event? Here is a little envelope template to get you started: You can download it be clicking here. (You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to download it.)
Fold the bottom flap up and adhere that too.
Adhere the coordinating paper flap on top of the flap. Now we'll add the brad fasteners. Just make a pencil mark about 1/2" from either side of the bottom of the flap. (See mine below:)
Place the brads into the holes you marked. Then cut a piece of embroidery floss 10" long. Tie it around one of the brads and wrap around the brads.
This envelope will hold an index sized card note, or recipe card. It would also work great for a journaling holder on a scrapbook page! Enjoy!
I'd LOVE it if you let me know what you make with it!
Now, since this is also a tutorial there's a giveaway! Yippee! Just leave me a comment with a joke or short funny story. Let's get each other laughing! I'll pick a random comment on Thursday night, August 14th. The prize will be as follows:
One package of the brads used to make the envelope. Don't worry if you don't live close. If you win I'll send you the brads for free!
Can't wait to hear your jokes/funny stories!
