I love to entertain, however, finding unique party favors can be a bit of a challenge. So here’s a simple party envelope favor you can make then fill with all sorts of surprises!

Party Envelope Favor

Finished Size: 3”x 3 ¾”

Step 1 - Cut Paper to Size

Using a rotary cutter, mat, and ruler cut paper to measure 7 ½” x 4”. Cut one short end with decorative scissors. This will be your front flap.

Step 2 - Start the Fold

Score then fold long edges in ½ inch. Fold the envelope flap over approximately 1 ½ inches then fold the envelope in half from top of flap fold.

Step 3 - Glue

Glue the outer edge folds and allow them to dry completely.

Step 4 - Add Ribbon

For ribbon, thread through the xxx and secure it with a grommet. Then secure it to the envelop.

Step 5 - Decorate

stationary and envelopes

Color the monogram with pencil or chalk. Using glue, secure the monogram to a button and the button to the envelope. Allow to dry.

Designer Note!

Fill the envelope with wrapped candy, a special message, or fun trinkets.
