More teeny tiny envelopes for Valentine's Day.

As I told you, I'm really addicted to making little envelopes with my We are Memory Keepers (WRMK) Envelope Punch Board! Well... the other night while watching TV, I made about 50 little teeny tiny envelopes using some of my pretty Valentine's themed scrapbook paper.


I really got carried away!


I had no idea what I was making them for, other than it was just plain fun.........


I used 3" squares of paper......... I love the little "kraft" and red envelopes, and the ones that have subway art on them..... and the ones with little pink and red hearts....


I made my first score and punch with the paper lined up at 1-3/8"... and then scored all the way around and punched each time. These are so easy to make! The punch board doesn't have directions for this small of an envelope, but use the measurements above, and you'll get these teeny tiny envelopes measuring just 1-3/4" x 1-3/8".  Some were even smaller, but now I don't remember what size squares I used for those! I decided they were almost TOO small.

I thought hum.m.m.m.m.m...........I DO have an Etsy shop...... why don't I put some in my Etsy shop. So I began to package them up into sets of 8. Then I thought.... hum.m.m.m.m..... these need something with them, since the package looks kind of bare, so I got out my Martha Stewart pad of Valentine's Day papers, and found some cute little "stamps" with some foil on them, and thought "these would look so neat tucked into the envelopes", or put on a card, so I cut out a bunch of stamps, and added 8 to each package........


 and then I thought....... these needs some little tags to hide inside, so someone could write a little "love" sentiment on them...... so I cut some little 1-1/4" cream colored tags with my Cricuit, and added 8 to the package.....


So now my little 24 pc. pack of envelopes, stamps and tags was ready to go! .......... and I made 4 packages to put in my Etsy shop.  Here's the complete set:


You can find them here in my Etsy shop.  There are four different sets with different papers and sets of stamps.  I have enough made for about 2 or 3 more sets, but don't have them packaged up yet.


And I thought..... while I"m at it, I'd better make a card to show you what you can do with these cute teeny tiny envelopes.......


I can see using these little envelopes also for tucking into your loved one's lunchbox (does anyone really "make" their lunches anymore? or do wives make lunches for their husbands????)......... or tucked inside a pocket of someone's shirt, or on top of their pillow....... with a little love-ly message slipped inside...........

Get that envelope punch board out and make some teeny tiny envelopes!

  1. I love my envelope punch board as well. Whenever we have Shoebox card kit events and I make a card that's not the normal size, I'll include envelopes of the right size. Pinterest has a bunch of ideas for other things to make with that board--like bows!

    1. Yes they are so fun to use. I've gone crazy watching YouTube videos on using it for different things. I saw the bows tutorials and also like that you can make tags with different edges at the top! Can also make card boxes and little gift boxes.... so versatile (and no, I'm not being paid to promote it!).
