Scrapbook Project: Heart Envelope for Artist Trading Cards

When trading Artist Trading Cards via snail mail. It is customary to include a little something "extra" in the package. It makes receiving the card into an experience. It's nice to include a short letter and a few pieces of scrap paper or some ephemera. My new favorite "extra" to send along with my ATCs is a fancy little (regiftable) envelope. I think it makes my cards seem that much more precious and it's a nice little surprise for the receiver. Here is a fun little envelope I designed with a heart shaped peep hole. Sometimes I decorate the envelope further, sometimes I just let it stand along.

Tape to a piece of decorative paper and cut and fold where indicated. Then simply fold up and glue. I hope you have fun with your new heart shaped envelopes!

Finished size: The perfect size to hold a 3.5" x 2.5" Artist Trading Card.
