DIY Book Page Envelopes

DIY Book Page Envelopes

We sell book page envelopes for our craft challenged followers BUT we also want to show you how to make them yourself for those that love to get crafty.

Size matters! Unless you are making your own custom card...but if you want them to fit a standard greeting card, you will want to make sure you have a book page large enough.

If you don't want to tear your own books, you can buy a page pack with book pages of various sizes and patina here.

A standard greeting card is 5.5 by 4.25. I found a book page that is 6.5 inches wide so that I had plenty of paper to make my folds.
