Folding an envelope: create your own gift packaging

Folding an envelope: create your own gift packaging

Discover in this DIY how to use a circle cutter and paper to create the perfect foundation for a gift envelope. Make your gift packaging extra festive by adding homemade confetti. 

Who will you surprise with this charming gift envelope?

1
Choose various sheets of Love-it paper and cut out 4 circles using a circle cutter. We opted for a diameter of 12 cm.
2
Fold the circles in half. Create a neat fold line by first scoring the paper with a cutting ruler, precisely in the middle at 6 cm.
3
Arrange the circles in a staggered manner, with the fold lines perpendicular to each other, forming a square. Use a pencil to mark the overlap, indicating where to glue the circles together.
4
Glue the circles together. To complete the envelope, you can attach a square piece of cardstock measuring 12 x 12 cm.
5
Grab some paper scraps and a hole punch. Use the punch to create a good amount of shapes that can serve as confetti.
6
Add the confetti to the envelope before folding it for an additional surprise effect.
7
Insert a card or gift into the envelope and fold it closed. Optionally, seal the top with adhesive to prevent the confetti from spilling out. Complete the look with a bow made of satin ribbon or bakerstwine.
8
Wil je een iets dikker envelopje? Vervang dan stap 2 door deze stap. Bepaal de dikte van de envelop, bijvoorbeeld 1 cm. Ril het papier met behulp van een snijliniaal dan op 5 en 6 cm. De korte kant zal de onderkant vormen. Ga hierna verder vanaf stap 3; de rest van de stappen blijven hetzelfde.
