It’s a good thing you can’t see the back of this project, I had to rework the envelope over and over, to save you the trouble the instructions are below and I hope to have a video to make it even easier by the end of the week.  I made this for graduation but with a few changes you can make a birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s, virtually and occasion you want to give money. Once you have the measurements this works up really fast and it’s so easy! I bought some foam squares from the Dollar store to back “celebrate” and “you”, they come in a variety of colors and I chose black to match the background of the envelope.
