Handmade Cards

This post originally appeared on By Hook or By Cook.

Lately I've been having a lot of fun making my own cards and envelopes. I recently was in charge of invitations for a wedding shower and decided to make square invitation cards along with their own envelopes. I thought they would also make a really neat gift for anyone who likes to write little notes (or for a bride or new mom who has all those thank yous to send).

You can download my templates for the 4¼" x 4¼" cards, envelopes, and a gift box, just the right size for 4-6 cards. The templates include cutting and folding instructions.

You can find a good recipe for envelope adhesive here.

Once I find my camera again, I will post photos of the finished product.


  1. I don't get around to making cards as often as I would like, but I'm always up for tips and tricks - enveloppes are a pain!
    Best wishes

  2. Cool - thanks for the envelope and box templates! I make all my cards (I post lots of them on my craft blog), but I've only made envelopes once. I like having templates to do so if the mood strikes!
