DIY 3D Envelopes - Flashback Sunday


Hello everyone! Today I won't be sharing a Card or Gift Box project. Instead, I decided to share my  DIY 3D Envelopes project.  Both the latest design and the original. For those of you who love to make 3D greeting cards like me, I know you can relate when I say most of the time we discover we don't have envelopes that will accommodate the thickness of the beautiful 3D cards we've created. 


I created these 3D Envelopes to package my latest Pop-Up Invitation with 3-Tier Cake Design. This was a Custom QuinceaƱera Invitation and my client wanted a 3D Pop-Up with a Pocketfold and a 3-Tier Cake. I think I did justice with the final outcome. But yeah, Pocketfold Invites are too thick to fit in a regular envelope. 


I love how they turned out. The additional embellishments at the corner adds glamour on the packaging invites. 


Here's a sneak peak of the Pop-Up Invitation Pocketfold Card with 3-Tier Cake. I will be posting more about it in the coming days. I would blog more often, but Jinky's Crafts Invites is swamped these days. It's very humbling and heartwarming.. Birthday Teens love my creations. 



These 3D envelopes are the ones I made when I was still Designing for Crafter's Companion.  I am re-posting just to share the How To's.  If you spare a little time and if you have the Enveloper / Envelobox board of Crafter's Companion, you can easily create a 3D envelope. 


A chart is available here with a guide on envelope size and thickness. 


This 3D envelope was decorated  with the Sheena Douglas Christmas Stamps





That's it my friends, you can now add elegance to your 3D greeting cards by using a 3D Envelope. Make DIY envelopes that will coordinate perfectly with your handmade 3D card creations. You will be happy with the result. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope I inspired you today!

Best looking envelopes I've ever seen! Just love the red ones with rhinestones. Great inspiration.
