Reusable Coupon Envelope

Materials:

  • 8.5x11 inch felt sheet
  • Fabric cut to 8.5x11 inches
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors
  • For a closure: snaps, buttons, ribbon, velcro, etc.

Instructions:

  1. I lined my felt sheet with my fabric and cut my fabric slightly larger than the felt sheet for sewing security. You can leave your felt sheet as is or cut down one inch in width for a slightly smaller envelope. In this case, I ended up making mine 7.5 inches.
     
  2. I sewed the fabric to the felt sheet using a straight, loose stitch.
     
  3. Trim off any excess fabric/felt.
     
  4. I folded up the bottom of the sheet to create a "pocket" that's about 3 inches deep.
     
  5. I used a loose zigzag stitch to stitch the edges together.
     
  6. I sewed a zigzag stitch around all edges to prevent the fabric from fraying as much.
     
  7. I have snap pliers and lots of snaps so I created a snap closure. If you do not have snaps, consider sewing a button to the front of your pocket and using ribbon/elastic to loop around the button. You could also use Velcro which is easy to apply and/or sew on!

LOVE THIS IDEA! VERY CUTE!! WHERE DID YOU GET THE MACHINE TO ATTACH THE SNAPS? THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR TO USE ON MY FABRIC CELL PHONE POUCHES I MAKE. THANK-YOU!!

Hi Carnashun--Thanks for your comment. You can find a snap closure at most craft stores. If you can't find it at the store, you can always search online at CutRateCrafts.com. Hope that helps!--FaveCrafts Editor

I like to do the categories with just pieces like index cards(depending on the size you need) cut with a tab at the top where I write the category name. The back or cereal boxes or other boxes like that work well for this and you can always paint them with acrylic paint or rubber stamp them, or both! Thanks for the directions Samantha!!

Just a pocket with a snap? Wow simplicity at it's finest, but for an obsessive person like myself I need more, a way to organize the different categories and something a little larger for the restaurant ads you find in Sunday's paper. Currently I'm working on a way to make my Cricut cartridge boxes work as organizers.
