Every good letter needs a cute envelope and I’m sharing how I made these Simple DIY Envelopes on the FOLK Blog.

I teared up while writing it – but don’t worry, there’s comic relief involving a sock monkey!

  1. Those are so cute.

  2. I have this scrapbook paper! Okay, so I have a LOT of scrapbook paper. I use my Cricut to make envelopes when I run out of my yard sale stash! I love the letters to your kids. We do encouragement notes where I write to them short notes during the year and then their dad writes to them before Christmas. Then they grow up and leave home :(

  3. what a very sweet idea. Something they will most definitely treasure. I have been keeping a journal for each of my kids, but I think the letter writing is better. I am going to try the switch. Love those envelopes.

  4. These are so cute. I have been looking for a tutorial to make envelopes for my art journal. But when I clicked on the link it wouldn’t link. Could you forward me the url? Thanks for the tutorial. I can’t wait to try it!

  5. I love the idea of writing letters to my kids, totally gonna steal that. Loving the envelopes too.

  6. Sounds intriguing…need to pop over and pay you a visit at the Folk blog!!
