This is so cute and so pretty. Use this envelope to send a message to someone you love dearly, or send a celebratory greeting. You could also use it as a gift tag or as a greetings card topper. Enjoy this fun easy craft idea.


  • 1 paper doily
  • embroidery floss
  • scissors
  • 1 button
  • pen and paper


  1. Fold in the sides of the doily, not quite to the centre.
  2. Fold the bottom section up. Crease all three folds well.
  3. Cut a piece of paper to fit and write your message.
  4. Cut a length of floss long enough to tie a bow. Thread it through the holes of the bottom flap.
  5. Fold the top flap down and crease it well. Thread the floss through again.
  6. Now thread the ends through the button.
  7. Tie the ends in a bow to secure and seal the envelope and trim them short.

I have never heard of such. It is cute. It is quaint. It is perhaps a bit Victorian. And you're right, it's downright pretty!


Thanks for posting this work.

(Did I forget to mention 'novel'?)
