It's my cousin's 16th birthday so I thought this decorated envelope card would be well suited for her. On the back envelope flap, I wrote my message to her and inside the envelope I gave her money as her gift (she's a teen and wants to save up for a laptop.)
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 1 card
- kraft paper
- magazine clippings
- white cardstock paper
- glue stick
- fine tip Sharpie (or black pen)
- cotton balls
- Figure out how many ice cream cones you would like on your envelope card. Then, cut out your triangular shapes from your kraft paper to resemble ice cream cones.
- Using a ruler or straight edge (I used a card I no longer need) make a criss cross pattern with a fine black permanent marker. Repeat process on all your ice cream cones.
- Flip through a magazine and find a theme/pattern/color/print you would like to use to decorate the envelop. Remove the page from the magazine and glue it onto your envelope. Cut off remaining magazine excess.
- Ready to glue on the ice cream cones.
- Glue down cotton balls (to resemble scoops of ice cream)
- On white cardstock, you can write your birthday greeting. I wrote "sweet birthday wishes". Then using scissors cut a triangular piece out on both sides to create the banner. Then glue the birthday greeting banner onto the envelope!
