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.
