I pulled out the Large Envelope Template that I have been itching to try and added it to the normal paper set-up.
I found a thanksgiving napkin and thought the design would work well. Perfect size to stretch from one side to the other without noticeable lines showing. I tore along the edges of the design and then peeled the 2-ply napkin apart.
Using the enclosed folding guide I was able to easily fold the perfect envelope! The napkin made the front of the envelope lovely, while the folded bits on the back showcased the beautiful green handmade paper.
I know that my brother will be surprised. Knowing him he will preserve the envelope for its beauty. See you next time when I tackle Christmas projects :-)
