DIY – Magazine Envelope (A-2) size

May 18

Create a fun & fabulous custom A-2 Envelope!

I started making these magazine envelopes when I was in high school.  I loved using my favorite fashion, fitness, and architectural magazines to create unique little containers for my crafted cards and letters. I’d even opt to not use the envelope a store bought card came with to make a special one that was more personalized. These envelopes really gave a fun touch to my correspondence but they also were an economical way to fancy up a regular letter, or get by when I didn’t have any envelopes on hand, which is what brought back this DIY project to me.  I had a card that didn’t have an envelope so I immediately pulled out my magazines and started creating.  It had been years since I last made one of these envelopes and I had so much fun doing it that I figured I’d make a post and a template for you.

*Note – the template I’ve included here is for a card size of 4″ x 5.5″ and an envelope size of A-2 – using a typical 8.5 x 11 size magazine page.  For larger sized envelopes you can adapt this template but just be sure your magazine page is large enough.
