  • How to make an envelope. Be Unique   String Tie Envelope With Alternate Ties - Step 1
    Step 1

    Instead of eyelets, use circles and pop dots. Just cut four circles (larger than your pop dot). The twine will be glued under only one of the dots. Don't cut the twine yet!

    I like the twine to start on the top dot. It's important that the twine be pointing down toward where it will wrap. Glue the pop dots on top of the circles.

    Finish off with the other two circles. I put a little dot of glue on the top and bottom of the pop dot - just to give a little more stick-to-it-ness. Wrap the twine around the pop dots and when you know for sure how much you need, then you can cut the twine. That way you ensure that you always have enough!

    Step 4

    To make this envelope:

    Cut your paper to 6 1/4 x 7 3/8". I printed my paper double sided on 80lb paper. Cut off the corners you've created with the 3/4" scores above and below the horizontal score lines. You will have tabs on just the middle section.

    Then as you can see one picture up, I used a decorative edge die on the top portion. Fold up the bottom and adhere to the tabs.
