DIY: Pretty Envelopes!

As a missionary girlfriend, I am always thinking of the little things I can do to brighten up my missionary's day. And this is why pretty envelopes are such a good idea! They just make everyone happy!

I thought of this before he left on his mission and I thought I was so cool for making super cute envelopes for my boyfriend, but then I discovered that I wasn't cool, and that I really need to stop thinking I'm cool, and that others have already done this and written about this subject many times before. But here I am, about to write about it again.

You will need:
  • Scissors
  • Papers (you can buy a thing of scrapbook papers or if you go here, here, here, and here, you will find a variety of downloadable papers, just make sure you have a color ink cartridge in your printer!)
  • An envelope of your choice (or if you go here you can get an envelope template plus some cute papers! and you can use this template for other pretty envelopes, you can also go here and use this cute envelope as a template)
  • Glue stick! 
  • Ruler!

first you gotta pick your template and your paper

trace over the paper!

cut out, fold and glue sides!

Now you are ready to send your missionary (or anyone else) super cute envelopes! How Adorable are these? :)
BTW: if you have an iPhone, you should really download A Beautiful Mess' new app. I'm obsessed! Get it here.
