A Love "Letter"

Happy Wednesday!!! Valentine's Day is sure coming up fast!!! Are you ready? If not, here's a simple pattern for Valentine's Day (or any day, really) that you can download here.

It looks like a regular envelope, but I made it 1/2" wide so you can put more than just a card inside. I also added a little postage stamp to make it look more like a letter. Below, I have a shot of the reverse side where I sealed the envelope with a stamped image of Sweetpea:

ok...this pattern is pretty easy. Just cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines. There are just 2 tabs on this pattern...secure them to the bottom piece with double stick tape. Then fold 2 side flaps toward center, and glue where the two flaps overlap (as shown below):

Apply glue to the edges of the bottom flap...fold up and adhere:

That's it!! Simple, huh? Now, just decorate!! Here's one more example:

And here's a picture of the two envelopes with some fun-size m&m's (of course, you can fill it with whatever fits...got any good ideas to share??)
