Calendar Page Envelope



Calender Paper Envelope by Anonymous

When I want to give a gift certificate to someone, I make an envelope out of calendar pictures/pages.  I start by trimming the rough edges.  Then I decide on the orientation of the picture, which is the outside of the envelope.  Then I fold the side edges about 1/3 to 1/2 inch.  Then I fold the page into three parts.  One part (the lip or opening) is smaller than the rest.   I cut a "V" shape out of the side folds at the folds (4 all together).  Then I cut off the side flaps on the top and bottom folded parts leaving the center flaps on.   The bottom third of the page is glued with stick glue or tape to the side flaps remaining in the center part.  Then it's done.

if you cannot picture it, get an envelope you like the shape of and open it up and use as a template.

A picture or two would have been very helpful as I am having a very hard time picturing the cuts on the flaps and the subsequent folding.


I am doing this with computer paper for my home made greeting cards.This is a nice idea to add to it. Thanks:)
