Supplies used for the Merry Lil Christmas Envelope and Folio Tutorial.

For this Merry Lil Christmas Envelope and Folio Tutorial you will need to fussy cut the elements page from the Merry Lil Christmas Subscription box. Purchase this as part of the physical Subscription Box or from the Virtual Subscription.
The Fiskars Easy Touch Scissors make fussy cutting a breeze. I find that my hand doesn’t get as tired when fussy cutting items.
Once the items have been fussy cut, apply distress ink Walnut Stain around the edges of the pieces. Adding the ink to the edges gets rid of the glaring white edge.
Score the pieces that need to be folded. I use my McGills Scoring tool and a ruler or sometimes I’ll use the edge of my Fiskars Paper cutter and a scoring tool. Fold the edges and apply ink to those folded edges.
Pierce holes in the circles and the flaps of the envelope using the the craft pick tool. I use a scrap piece of fun foam or an old mouse pad under my project so that I don’t punch a hole in my work surface.
Attach the circles with 4 mm brads. Fill the envelope with the folio and ephemera. Fold the flaps in and use bakers twine or any thick thread to hold the flaps closed.
Attach the Special Delivery Label or any other embellishment you choose to the outside front of the envelope.
See how fast the Merry Lil Christmas Envelope and Folio Tutorial was to create? Use the envelope to trace more or print from the digital files to create multiple envelopes to give as gifts. By the way a plastic gift card fits inside the folio and envelope. What a super cute gift that would be to add a gift card and give to someone!
