To make your own envelopes you will need, a template, security envelopes, scissors, and a glue stick. If you don't have a template, there's a lot of free envelope templates online. You can also unfold an envelope you already have and use that as your template.
1. Cut open your used security envelope so it's a flat piece of paper. Trace template on the envelope. Cut out. It should look something like the picture above.
2. Fold into an envelope and glue together with a glue stick. Glue sticks work best because they won't make the paper wrinkle. Liquid glue tends to make paper pucker.
I played around with security envelopes with address windows. Above I stuffed a $20 dollar bill in the envelope. I like the idea of someone getting a little sneak peak of their gift. These money envelopes are the perfect size for gift cards too. Go to my shop and check out some other types of envelopes I have made. UpcycleRecycleReuse Shop
