Craft Tutorial: How to make a string tie envelope.

How to make your own String Tie Envelope

Time: 15/30 minutes

You can use these string tie envelopes to hold little gifts or to send your handmade cards to friends.

Theme the colours to your wedding and use them for confetti at your wedding party.

For Valentines Day, use them to hold homemade gift certificates. A really sweet and thoughtful gift that doesn’t break the bank.

They really turn an average token into a fantastic gift. You can also use them as packaging for jewellery, to give as a gift to someone special.

Materials you will need to make your envelope

awl (any pointed object, a large needle would do)

compass and bone folder

embroidery thread

Double sided tape or glue stick

Craft Knife or scissors

coloured card and lining paper (optional)

Step 1.

Print your free template. Cut out the string tie envelope template from coloured card. Select lining paper, repeat. You can cut out the entire template, I only had a small bit of the paper so I just cut out what would be seen.

Step 2

Use the bone folder to crease along all the interior lines that were shown on the template.

Step 3

Use awl to pierce hole in top flap (where shown on template). Cut 15cm of embroidery thread. Push through, leave small tail on interior and secure with double sided tape.

Step 4

Stick lining paper to inside of the string tie envelope

Step 5

Make your brad ‘button’ (see below)

Step 6

Glue it all together. Put glue on very edge of inside of part B.Press B on top of Flap A

 Step 7

Repeat for bottom flap

 Step 8

Finally wrap a small piece of lining paper around the end of the embroidery thread.

wrap paper around end of string

and you're done making your own stationery
