Letter Envy

I remember making all kinds of cool folds for stationery with my elementary school students way back in the day. You know the prehistoric times when we didn't have die cut machines or embossing? I even still have a VHR tape showing all these cool things to do with kids. When I looked at a blog the other day I just squealed!!!! This is one of the things I made with my kids after a writing assignment. They wrote letters for their parents and I wanted them to be special. Our envelopes were crudely shaped, out of wrapping paper I think. We didn't have a paper cutter, so we used a ruler and scissors. I know <gasp!> right? I loved what she did with hers, using the FREE paper you can get during Sale-A-bration, so I just had to make one too. Using the envelope punch board just made it a snap! Now who made this cute envelope thingy? That's a very good question, and I am so glad  you asked. The answer is... I dunno. I could have sworn it was Lyssa Zwolenek. but I just looked all over her blog and I can't find it. I looked at my Pinterest boards and didn't see it there either. So maybe it was Lyssa and she put it on Splitcoast or Stampin' Connection. Leonie Schroder has one very similar on her blog, but I really think it was Lyssa. Geeze! Anway isn't it the cutest thing? Here is mine below and I can't wait to show it to the girls in my stamping group! Thanks Lyssa or Leonie or whoever it was. lol

EDITED: It was Lyssa Zwolenek who first made this cute letter envy. 


  1. That is really cute Carole! TFS!!!

  2. Cute! It looks super simple to make. Might need to put this on my list!

  3. Omgosh, I'm so trying this!! IT reminds me of high school days (ahem, back when dinosaurs ruled the earth!) where we'd make our notes to each other into all kinds of fun designs. You brought back great memories!
