I love the look of a printed envelope. It's not hard to do but looks fantastic when it's done.
This year, I didn't do anything spectacular for the kids' valentines. We were told by the school to fill in the "from:" section of the cards and keep the "to:" field blank. Hubby went out and bought some scratch/sniff cards for our kindie kid that came with envelopes. Little man filled in the card but was too sick to write on the envelope.
To help him out, I drafted something quick on Photoshop.
However, I discovered the mini envelopes were too small for my printer. Some of you will remember that I put paper lunch bags through my printer (here and here) without any problems. So I decided to tape the envelopes to a sheet of paper in order for it to feed properly through my printer. Here's how:
- Determine the smallest size of paper your printer can handle and cut a piece out. Tape your envelope to the paper.
- Consider doing a test run on your sample paper so you know which side the flap should go.
- Check your work
- All done and ready to be stuffed.
Seeing as how this was not a "mama" project, little (sick) man was my printer boy.
The envelopes were so cute when they were all stacked up.
We had lots of time left over to do some teacher envelopes. I love using Photoshop. I cannot believe I used to use Microsoft Word to design my envelopes (remember this?).
Happy Valentine's Day!
