DIY: Simple Felt Gift Envelope

the_twiddles_diy_felt_gift_envelope-12-1 Hey there! My favorite season is here, Fall! Yippee! I love all seasons (especially Spring & Summer, NOT winter! Too cold :P), but it is something about fall that brings me joy. I think it’s the colorful leaves, crisp weather, more cuddles, and gift giving season is right around the corner. I created these cute little gift envelopes the other day to deliver some orders to customers. I thought it would be great to share with you all a simple DIY on creating these cuties to use for your personal gift giving this holiday season. Here’s what you’ll need: (Click on photos to enlarge)
the_twiddles_diy_felt_gift_envelope-1 Materials Needed: Sheet of felt, ruler or measuring tape, scissors, pinking shears (optional), & glue gun.

Step 1: Measure your item on the felt & cut out the appropriate measurements.

Step 2: Fold the felt and leave about 1.5in. open at the top for the flap. Note: If you decide on using pinking shears, I suggest cutting the edges during this step before applying the hot glue. Makes it easier. :)
Step 3: Add glue to the edges of the felt to create a pocket.

Step 4: Cut about .5in. from the edges of the flap diagonally. This helps the flap tuck in easily.
Step 5: Insert your gift, close the flap, & you’re done!
