Loaded Envelope Tutorial
Today I’m sharing with you an easy, clean and simple Loaded Envelope Tutorial. The Loaded Envelope craze is the mastermind of my friend Anna Torres. Anna came up with this idea on how to convert a run of the mill yellow envelope into a work of art!
There are several different styles of loaded envelopes now since they were first introduced by Anna. The one I’m showing here is a clean and simple design that anyone can make, regardless of your crafting level.
What is a Loaded Envelope?
The loaded envelope is a fun way to send snail mail / happy mail to a crafty friend. You can stuff it with all kinds of goodies. Whether they’re handmade or store bought, the recipient will be able to enjoy unpacking the loaded envelope! As you can see, for this particular loaded envelope I’ve decided to make some handmade cards, rosettes, and other embellishments (not shown). How do you send out a loaded envelope? You may ask. Easy. You place it in a box and mail it out as a parcel! Mailing these out are not as expensive as you may think. The parcels go by weight and size, and it all depends on how much you put in there.
Although my video is in Spanish, uploaded to my Spanish speaking crafting channel, Manualidades, you can easily see how I measure, cut and put together this tropical theme loaded envelope. In addition, I throw in a Rosette Tutorial.
The measurements for this clean and simple loaded envelope are as follows:
You will cut four pieces of scrapbook paper:
- One piece at 6 3/4 x 9 1/2 then you score at the 9 inch mark
- One piece at 6 3/4 x 9
- Two pieces at 2×9 inches; then you’ll score both pieces (length-wise) at 1/2, 1, and 1 1/2 inches.
In the video, you can see how I put my pieces together, cut the topper, and decorate the loaded envelope.
