DIY string-tie envelopes. Hello!

DIY string-tie envelopes

Sorry about the little break. My son has been off on his half-term holidays so I had a blog-free week! Now I am back, I just want to give a big shout out (and a big thank you) to my new sponsors, pi’ikea street and paper glitter….do check their sites out! I also wanted to say a massive thanks to all the people who have left comments lately (and to those who have sent me lovely emails). It’s been especially great to hear from people who have been making the projects…and ace seeing all your pictures…hurray! I do confess that I have always had a ‘thing’ about string-tie envelopes. These dinky little envelopes are great for all-sorts of things (storing paper ephemera, housing invitations/gift cards, storing seeds). By the way, now my kids are getting better at using scissors they have been really enjoying making their own envelopes using the template from my previous post. You will find a full tutorial and templates below!
