Welcome to DIY 'N Fashion!

If you're an art lover- or maybe a fashion obsessionist, you've come at the right place! I personally LOVE fashion!!! I think fashion is not just in your taste of clothing but, your room aswell! It is like art, it has patterns and really defined designes that covers up the fabric! It can change almost anything boring to look fabulicious!

Mini Envelope

How to create a mini envelope?

Didn't have time to buy yourself envelopes? And you want them to look cute for your friend's birthday or for Valentine's Day? Well...there's help on the way! Just follow the steps below on and you'll have a mini envelope in few minutes!

*White paper (or colored-preferably white for your envelope)
*Ruler (30 cm)
*Glue stick

-Use the longer side of your paper. The measurement for height is 10 cm and for the length is 14 cm.
-Using a pencil and ruler trace out the measurements lightly. (Do not mark darkly since you'll have to erase the pencil mark when you've finished.)
-Now cut this out carefully so you don't bend the paper in any way.
-Last step is to now bend it in half.

-Now this is the tricky part. Once you've cut out your "card" you'll be left with a big "L". You'll be using the part where there's paper extending on the longer side.
-Cut out the remaining piece of paper (as if the white paper is almost "half".)
-Once you've done that, the next step is to take your "card" and place it at the "bottom" of the page. Make sure you leave some space (0.1 cm at least) and that you're placing your card not upwards .
-Now, fold it to the size of the "card".
-Next, you have to draw your measurements for the correct envelope size. You'll need to mark 0.6 cm on the right side of the paper and leave a little space (without marking) about 0.1 cm. If you like, you can ensure yourself by measuring and placing a dot to indicate the measurement.
-Then measure the "middle" and it should be 8 cm. Leave 0.1 cm then mark with a line using your ruler, 0.6 cm.
-Once that is done, your next step is to create the "triangle" of the envelope (the part where you seal your envelope).
-For that you must measure by placing your ruler horizontally and then trace the line. This will be the height of the envelop's "triangle".
-Find the "middle" by measuring the "line" you've just drew. You should be having an equal triangle once you've drawn the line downwards that will attach to the "inner line" on both ends. (By that, you should be able to make out your envelope's shape, or not.)
-Now, you have to remove the "card" and trace the "folded line" of your envelope. Only so that, when you cut there you'll be able to see it clearly.
-Then, measure 0.6 on both "inner" sides as well before you do the next step.
-After this, fold back the "envelope" so it looks like it did before you've opened it. Take your ruler and place it right on the (top) edge of your "envelope" and trace a "line" using your ruler.
-This is the difficult part. You'll have to be extra careful so that you don't cut out the wrong "line". (It's better to practice before hand.)
- Now, cut out the "extras" that are not part of the "envelop". This should include the extra piece on the left side of your "envelop". Do NOT cut out the "triangle" or the "thin long" 0.6 cm strips on the right and left of the envelope.
-You'll need to bend the two "thin long" 0.6 cm strips. the "inner one" on both sides will be glued to the "outer envelope". While the outer "thin long" 0.6 cm strips will be glued at the "back" of the envelope. Can you make out the mini envelope?
-Well...two more steps to go! Fold the "triangle" and erase the pencil marks.
-Now you're done!

Hope you enjoy making mini envelope!
