Glue (elmers liquid or stick will work)
Carefully unfold your envelope. This will become your stencil. If you prefer you can first trace this onto a heavy piece of cardstock or a thin piece of cardboard for something that will last longer.
Select your magazine page and carefully trace the shape onto it using a ball point pen.
Cut out your shape. Be sure to cut as close to perfect as you can. It’s hard to cover up a mistake in a crooked line or something.
Start to fold your sides. Reference your envelope that you used to trace! Try to be as straight as you can with your folds.
Lightly glue the diagonal sides. You do not need a lot of glue. White glue is very strong. You could add some glue to a q-tip and dab it on gently if you prefer.
You’re done! Double check our folds, make sure they’re fully creased! You could add a white address label to the front for a space to write on.
These make wonderful gifts for people! Written letters are becoming a lost art! Why not help keep it alive while recycling magazines! Enjoy.
