Hello there lovely Buttoneers! It’s time for another Tutorial Tuesday! This time I have a super easy ten-step guide of how to make your own handmade fancy envelopes. I know…I know…you get an envelope with your shop bought Christmas cards, why bother making them…

Well…just look how pretty they could be and really personal, you could even line them with photographs.  I am so bored with plain old red, white or green envelopes for my shop-bought Christmas cards, I mean I spend enough on them; the least they could do is have a fancy schmancy envelope to feed the stationery geek in me! Not to mention when I find the time to make my own crafty Christmas cards, how snazzy they will look all dolled up in a handmade super-cute envelope.

Your cards could turn heads at the Christmas party as if you’ve just rocked up in your underwear and a pair of stilettos…except with maybe a little more elegance!
