Make envelope templates by carefully opening envelopes at the seams. You can steam them open or slowly roll a pen under the seam starting at the corners.
Lay two different color pieces of oly*fun™ on a table and place opened envelope template on top. Trace around outer edge of envelope and cut.
Pin the two pieces of oly*fun™ together and sew using ¼ inch seam allowance.
Refold into envelope shape and glue or tack seams together. Embellish as desired
Here are some great variations to try:
1) Instead of opening the seams on the envelope you can simply slit down the two sides. Flatten out the envelope. Trace onto the two oly*fun™ sheets. Fold bottom of envelope shape back up. Pin and sew using ¼ inch seam allowance creating a pocket.
2) You can tie your envelope closed with a strip of oly*fun™ or you can sew a button to the bottom of the envelope and cut a slit on the top fold for a fancy closure.
3) You can cut one of the pieces of oly*fun™ a little smaller with a pair of pinking shears or pattern cut scissors to create a festive border.
4) You can also make no-sew envelopes. Just pick one color and skip the sewing.
