Post contains affiliate links. I can’t let Black Friday pass by without offering some of my beautiful Christmas cards with an envelope template FREE to my readers. All cards have bible verses on the back.
I love to encourage people to be more healthy. But I also know that the practical day-to-day world of homeschooling involves getting schoolwork done, even when the holidays are here.
During the Christmas season, dealing with the excitement of the holidays can make focusing on school more difficult. This is a perfect time to do art AND send Christmas cards out to the important people in your life. These beautiful high resolution Christmas cards can be printed and sent to friends and family without leaving your house. As long as you have a printer, scissors and paper, you can make envelopes to go with the cards in this freebie.
Learning how to make envelopes is not only fun, it gives you the opportunity to learn a new skill. Printing envelopes at home saves money too!
LINK FOR ENVELOPE TEMPLATE
You can create your own envelopes. It’s super easy. The cards I’ve created are 4 1/4 x 6 inches. I found a website, Pretty Paper Love, with directions for making an A7 envelope. A7 envelopes are around 5 1/4 to 7 1/4 inches, which will be a bit big. But you can adjust the size of the template to fit the cards.
NOTE THAT THE TEMPLATE on Pretty Paper Love’s website IS NOT ACTUAL SIZE WHEN YOU PRINT IT.
8 1/2 x 11 inch paper is not big enough. YOU WILL NEED EITHER
- 11 X 17 Legal Size Paper OR
- 12 x 12 paper OR
- 12 x 18 construction paper (you can use 9 x 12 if you’re super careful when you measure and cut)
If you prefer, and you have an envelope in your house that’s the right size, you can carefully open it up and use that as a template as well.
NOTE: Pretty Paper Love also has a template and directions on making an envelope liner.
You can use any color or pattern of paper you prefer!
If you prefer, you can also purchase your own A4 size envelopes here.
NOTE: MAKE SURE THE ENVELOPES ARE AT LEAST 4 1/4″ X 6 1/4,” AS ENVELOPE SIZES VARY EVEN BETWEEN GIVEN SIZES.
