Today I’m sharing how to decorate envelopes and make them extra special. Not only are the ideas easy, but they’re really inexpensive!
I love greeting cards. (Before I had kids, I worked at a Hallmark subsidiary designing cards.) I also love an amazing deal. So when I heard Walmart was offering Hallmark cards that start at 47 cents, I was pumped.
These 47 cent cards from Hallmark can only be found at Walmart in the greeting card aisle. I was excited to see that large array of sending situations offered, but I was focused on stocking up for my nieces’ and nephews’ birthdays. And at this price, stocking up was easy!
I love the cards. They are bright and fun with designs to fit all ages.
And, if it could get any better, they have colored envelopes!
This is where I wanted to make my cards a little extra special and give them my DIY touch. And I promise, these envelope decorating ideas are easy!
One way to decorate these envelopes is with washi tape. I found my rolls for around $1 in the craft department at Walmart. Washi tapes comes in endless patterns and is really easy to work with since it can be removed if you mess up.
See how much fun this tape is?
I love buntings. Buntings just scream celebration. All you need to do to create your own washi tape bunting is draw a line on your envelope. If you’re sending the card, keep in mind return address and stamp placement.
Next, cut small pieces of the tape and draw triangles along the bottom.
Once the triangles are cut out, place your little “flags” along the line you drew. That’s all you need to do to make an adorable bunting.
I also lined the envelope flap with tape.
And I created a bunting using triangles I cut from the washi tape.
Here’s another little envelope craft that cost me nothing since I already had the supplies on hand. All you need is an unused pencil eraser and an ink pad.
The pencil eraser becomes your stamp. Just keep the eraser flat, and you’ll have perfect little dots.
It’s so easy!
I’m now stocked up and ready for all my nieces’ and nephews’ birthdays for the next year. Treat yourself to a little organization and stock up on these fun 47 cent cars from Hallmark!
