Gather a se­lec­tion of dif­fer­ent-sized en­velopes.

Choose some pat­terned pa­per – this can be any­thing from re­cy­cled wrap­ping pa­per to wall­pa­per, Ja­panese pa­per or coloured tis­sue.

Us­ing a piece of card, make a tem­plate (you’ll need one for each size of en­ve­lope you make). Do this by plac­ing your en­ve­lope onto the card with the flap open, and draw­ing around it with a pen­cil (it should look like the out­line of a house with ei­ther a pointy or long roof ).

Cut out the tem­plate 0.5cm in­side the pen­cil line.

Place the tem­plate onto the lin­ing pa­per and draw around it, then cut it out.

Stick dou­ble-sided tape or use a glue stick along ei­ther side of the lin­ing pa­per ‘roof ’ and a third to half­way down the sides.

Care­fully slide the lin­ing into the en­ve­lope, mak­ing sure the sticky edges don’t at­tach to the wrong place, or take off the pro­tec­tive strip of the dou­ble-sided tape once in­serted.

Stick down and use to send lovely, unique notes.
