Twirly Envelopes!

Have you seen those envelopes made of circles on Pinterest? Easy to assemble and fun to look at! Can't find the source . . . the pinterest picture didn't lead to a link :-(.

You will need:
  • Pretty card stock
  • Pencil or pen with disappearing ink
  • Glue or double-sided tape
  • Ribbon
1. Use 12"x12" card stock.

2. Use the CD or template to draw 4 circles. I used disappearing ink so that any goofs made while tracing would . . . well . . . disappear.

3. Cut out the circles.

4 and 5. If you have a paper scorer, use it to score lines exactly down the centers of the circles. Use the scored line to fold each circle. If you don't have a scorer, eyeball the center, fold and crease with your fingers

6. Use double-sided tape to attach the bottom of each circle to the other circles. I use double-sided tape because it's easy to shift things around if the circles aren't fitting together well.

7. Write a little card for a loved one.

8. Add candy.

FACT: Candy makes everything better.

9. Close it up. It will stay closed on its own.  

10.  Add some ribbon and you are done! Perfect as a gift-card box, for handmade valentines or lunchbox notes!

  2. A handmade card and/or envelope is a special gift on it's own. I would never turn down candy though!

    1. Agreed! Love all vintage finds! Are you by chance going to to Junk Bonanza this spring?
