Mini Envelopes Galore!!

Hi! Bev here with a quick make using the envelope template from the lovely Amy Tan.

What you will need
  • Silhouette Cameo® or Silhouette Portrait®
  • Cardstock
  • Glue runner or glue stick
Step One

Open up a fresh page in your Silhouette Studio® and import the template from your library

Resize as required.  These particular envelopes are destined for a lovely friend of mine who is going to use them to house little messages to be put into a money box.  So these needed to be smaller than the normal size.  I resized them to approximately 3 inches wide.

Using the replicate tool fill the page with these shapes, I managed to get 15 on a 12x12 sheet of cardstock.

Ensure the cut settings are set to cardstock and send to the Silhouette

Once cut you will have lots of these shapes that will need to be folded and glued to create the envelopes

Using a glue runner or glue stick glue the bottom flap up towards the side pieces.  I used a ruler to help with the folding process

These envelopes are now on their way to their new home, but this concept can be used for any type of papercraft, scrapbooking, journalling and even little lunchbox notes.  A very quick project that can be made in a variety of different patterns.

I have really enjoyed sharing with you and I can't wait to see what you create!
