Handmade Envelopes

Instead of throwing away old magazines why not make your own envelopes? Here are some recent outgoing letters that I stuffed into envelopes made from folded Korean magazine paper. I had finished reading (or at least attempted to read) a free magazine and I love the look of Hangul so I thought I’d recycle by turning all that waste into fun envelopes.



Once you decorate them with stickers and stamps they really come together.


You can check out the folding template below.


I was inspired by this handmade newspaper envelope that I received from a friend out in BC.
The design possibilities are endless and each envelope is different. They are all so unique because of the fact that no two pages in a magazine are the same 🙂



I think it makes letters extra special when you decide to send an envelope with some colour or print instead of a plain white one. In any case, these were fun to make and now I have a huge stack of them. Have a great weekend everyone 🙂



  1. Thank you for sharing this folding template! Your magazine envelopes are gorgeous and inspiring. I usually try to cut my own envelopes, but folding them is probably a lot easier 😀

    1. Hallvi, thank you!! 🙂 Yes, folding them is much easier and they are really quick to make this way! Glad you found use in this post. Happy crafting!
