Handmade Paper Mini Christmas Card and Envelope Tutorial

A lovely touch for Christmas is a handmade card. Mini cards are cute and can bed attached to a small present under the tree. This card and envelope has been made from handmade paper but any paper you like can be used, rice paper, scrapbook paper, sheet music or wrapping paper would also work well.

Mini envelope template
Copy paper
Glue stick
Handmade paper
Green paper scraps
Craft knife

Do an internet search and find a free mini envelope template you like. Print it and adhere it to some cardboard (a cereal box works well) and then cut it out.

Trace the template onto a piece of handmade paper using a pencil. Cut it out on the line.

Score the envelope flaps with a ruler.

Fold the envelope and glue the flaps down.

Cut a piece of handmade paper, which will be folded in half to make a card, mine was 7cm X 5cm. Make sure your measurements are slightly smaller than the size of your envelope.

Fold in half.

Draw a tree and use a craft knife to cut it out.

Cut a scrap of green paper to fit behind the tree cut out. Mine was 3cm x 4cm.

Place glue on the inside of the card, around the tree edges.
Attach the green paper.

A cute mini card and envelope.
