Make Your Own Wallpaper Envelopes

Make your own envelopes Wallpaper samples or calendar pictures make great envelopes. The black or darkest paper samples look wonderful with the trim of lace - very Victorian!

You will need:

  • Wallpaper sheets / samples OR
  • Old calendar pictures
  • Craft glue
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Lace, applique decorations, etc.
You can take apart any envelope and use it as a template or pattern, but I find that a plain, straight sided envelope makes better use of the smaller wallpaper sheets. I'll give measurements that fit the sizes I used for the letter cards:

Template Measurements

Insert card, fold down flap and seal with glue. Trim flap edge with a strip of glued on lace. Securely glue on an applique "seal" at center.

Affix a plain label to front for addressing.

Note: Self-adhesive stamps adhere well on all types of paper. If you have regular "lick" stamps, use glue to adhere them to the envelope.
