Hello, my dear Photoshop brushes and DiY addicts!
Valentine’s day is near and now is the right time to get ready and prepare some nice surprises for the ones we love. We all know that the best gifts are the ones that we prepare by ourselves. So, for today I prepared a little DiY tutorial on how to make a Valentine’s day envelope. Envelope is not a gift by itself but a self-made envelope with a nice message inside to accompany it, well, that’s something completely different. Your beloved one will love you for this.
First of all, to make a proper Valentine’s day envelope, you will need a proper paper with some cool Valentine’s day design theme.
Sponsor of this article (and that would be me) recommends some of the High Quality Photoshop brushes by Graphics-Illustrations.Com .
I guess that “Valentine’s Photoshop brushes” would be the best choice for the occasion.
OK. Once you selected the brushes you will use for design and printed the envelope paper it’s time to make an envelope.
I took these photos to show you how to do it:
And here on this link there are some additional explanations ->
Fold the paper it in a way shown above.
Now fold the top flaps, and create square shapes from triangles.
Flop the inside corners outwards and fold the middle triangle shape upwards.
Double fold the upper edge and then tuck the outer half of it inside the pocket.
Picture 9. shows tucked folded part from pic 7. and 8. Now fold left and right sides inwards.
Fold the bottom corners towards the center, fold and tuck bottom into envelope opening.
And that’s it.
Again, if you need additional help, here are the original instructions I used to create this tutorial ->
And, finally, here is the video on how to do it:
