It isn’t a trick, let’s get started on this Trick or Treat Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial. Begin with an envelope. Mine was left over from one of our old businesses. Any envelope will work. If yours is used and you don’t have the flap check out this video for more ideas on how to alter envelopes for Halloween.
Cut two inches from the ends of the envelope. Save these pieces as they will become pockets. Place the opened envelope center and one of the ends inside a spray box. Spray Tattered Angels Almost Black, Tangy Lime, and Splatter Safety Orange on the pieces. Flip the envelope over and spray the inside Tangy Lime.
Cut a piece of ivory cardstock 3 x 3.5 inches. Spray with Tattered Angels Tangy Lime and splatter Almost Black on the card.
Apply Distress Ink, Black Soot and then Walnut Stain to all the edges of the envelope pieces and the card.
Stamp sentiment on white cardstock with graphite black ink. Mat with black cardstock.
Adhere the pocket on the front of the envelope covering the return envelope. Create a skull, circle and tulle element and adhere to the pocket. Place sentiment on the right side of the pocket.
Stamp bat on the journal card. Place card inside pocket on the front of the envelope.
Flip envelope over and create Skull and Circle element and adhere on the back so that it catches the flap but isn’t glued shut.
