Envelope Templates

Several people have asked how I made the Laura Ashley wallpaper envelopes. I use the Kreate-a-lope templates from greensneakers. Three or four years ago at a sale, I found a set of about 8 templates for $8. It was 8 bucks well spent. I use those templates all the time. They work really well. And, by the way, I don't work for Kreate-a-lope because if I did, I wouldn't say that I'd have a really hard time coughing up the cash they're asking for these babies.

Check out the video below. The only difference is that I usually trace out the template and cut it out instead of tearing. I prefer the clean edge look.

Edit: I was so proud of embedding a video. This was my first time doing this. But, now I see it's out of whack and encroaching on the right sidebar's space. I don't have time to figure this out right now, so it will just have to stew on the back burner for a while. Grrr.....


  1. no worries! I still haven't figured out the video embedding so you're doing better than me!
    I have hand made templates- not as easy as this though.

  2. I have these things too. Got them ages ago, and use them all the time. Loads of fun. What a find for you! Enjoy!

  3. Patty, thank you so much for the envies, they arrived today. I am excited to use them. Look for a fun thank you in your mailbox.

  4. Thank you so much for posting this. I was so excited, I ordered the templates immediately and have been having SO much fun making envelopes (Trader Joe's bags are GREAT!)

  5. I hate to post a comment on an older post, but I've seen these templates and have wondered if they're worth the expense. I've made something similar for myself, but the plastic would be nice, and the window insert would be awesome to have when folding. Thanks for the review!
