Instructions

  • Envelope-Pattern-150x150

Step One

First print out 4 of the pattern provided on 11×17 paper. Your local office supply store can do that for you. Tape them together so they look like the image of the completed pattern. Lay the pattern on top of your sliver Aluminor™ and cut out with a rotary cutter or scissors.

Step Two

Using a needle & Thread sew your button on to the right side of the Aluminor™ on the bott

  • Envelope-Step4-1

Step Three

Next sew the elastic on the back side of the top. You want to fold the elastic in half and then sew it down leaving about 3/4″ in a loop at the top. I pinned it and then sewed it.

  • Envelope-Step3

Step Four

Fold the sides of your envelope and press with a warm (not hot) iron, using a piece of fabric in between the iron and the Aluminor. After the sides are pressed, press the bottom up and then the top down to create the envelope.

  • Envelope-Step5

Step Five

Using a hot glue gun, glue the bottom to the sides with a thin line of glue.

  • Envelope-Step6
  • Envelope-Step6.1

Step Six

Add your trim. I chose a small ribbon and small pom pom trim to accent the edges. I glued the end of the ribbon and the pom pom to the inside of the envelope and then continued glueing all the way around the outside edges.

  • Metallic-Valentine-Envelope-2

Step Seven

I also wanted to hang my envelope so I used a piece of ribbon (about 5″ long) and glued the ends to the back. Last cut a heart out of felt and add that to the center.
