Foil Paper Sheets-Envelope Tutorial

Did you know that in this package of Party Games Paper Sheets & Tags, there is a 24″x36″ sheet of thick, gorgeous, red foil? This Party Games package is not just for kids! I’m going to show you how to use that foil sheet to make an elegant gift card envelope that would be perfect for any adult-I’m sure kids will like it too!

These are all of the fun goodies I used for this project-it really is a paper crafters playground!

To begin, I cut a 12×12 square of foil from the large paper sheet. This was easy to do, as the foil sheet is folded-I simply cut along the fold lines. Next I took a large envelope and pulled it apart to create a template. This envelope is quite large and filled most of the 12×12 foil sheet when unfolded. Then, I simply traced around the envelope and cut it out of the foil sheet.

Fold the envelope folds inward, and adhere with the Scrapbook Adhesives MyStik adhesive runner.

This is what the envelope will look like closed. Isn’t it pretty?

With the scrap foil I had left, I punched out red foil butterflies with this great Fiskars punch. These will decorate the front of the envelope.

To add some additional texture, I wound Maraschino Bakers Twine around the envelope, tied a bow, and adhered a red button to the center of the bow with the Scrapbook Adhesive adhesive foam squares. The foam squares were also used to adhere the butterflies.

Lastly, I folded in the wings a bit, and trimmed the butterfly edges with Platinum Stickles. Love how this turned out! Now, if you were to mail this envelope, you would want to put it inside of another plain envelope in order to protect it. Wouldn’t this be great too for Valentine’s Day, or Christmas? As mentioned, this envelope was quite large, and took most of the 12×12 foil sheet. However, I also made a smaller envelope, and I could have gotten 2 or 3 per 12×12 sheet. Cute idea for classroom valentines.

This really was  a quick project, so break out that foil-Party Games Paper Sheets & Tags is not just for kids!
