I started making little Valentine felt envelopes for gift cards. They are so easy and fun to make.
felt in pink and red
contrasting embroidery thread
Cut a piece of felt into a rectangle. I cut mine into 8" x 4" and 10" x 4".
Fold the felt rectangle in half and cut the top into a point.
Now the envelope can be folded into thirds.
Stitch the bottom with a running stitch.
Fold the bottom up about one third and start stitching around the edge, bottom, sides and all the way up over the point with a running stitch. Sew a button over the point.
If you don't have any buttons - a felt heart can be sewn over the point.
On the above envelopes I forgot to sew the bottom - but the envlopes work the same.
I am planning on making these little felt gift card envelopes for birthdays and other holidays.
These little envelopes can be used for gift cards, love notes or a sweet candy treat. Happy Valentine's Day!
