  • How to make an envelope. Scrapbook Paper Gift Envelopes - Step 1
    Step 1

    Decide how big you want your gift envelopes and find something that size shaped like a circle. I used Pyrex food containers. Since I had a picture but not a tutorial to go by, my sizes were kind of an experiment, so I tried two different sizes. The smaller circles were a little over 3 inches in diameter and the larger circles were a little over 4 inches.

    Trace your circles four times on different sheets of scrapbook paper.

    Fit your circles together so that one side of each circle goes over and one side goes under. They will fit together the way that you would close a box without tape.
