You’ll be surprised how easy these DIY Valentine Envelopes are to make! Seriously.
Think back to when you were a kid and how you would draw a house on paper. You would start out with a square or rectangle on the paper for the house, right? Then you would add a triangle on top for the roof, is that how you would draw a house? That’s how I did it, and still do!
That is exactly the pattern for these envelopes. But use more of a rectangle than a square for your base. It’s that easy.
You’ll cut your felt in a shape of a house with a pointed roof. (That’s the simplest way to explain it Then using a sewing machine (or needle & thread) stitch along the edges. I used a decorative stitch, but any stitch will do. Follow along the point of the envelope with a stitch if you so desire. I used covered buttons to embellish the envelopes, but plain buttons will look just as cute! Honestly, after I finished cutting, sewing 5 of these envelopes took less than 15 minutes. They really are that fast & simple to make!

Lavender to me, is a little luxury gift that you can give your friends. It doesn’t matter how big or small, the smell is also so lovely & refreshing. Believe it or not, I buy my lavender from a vendor on eBay & I just store the leftovers in a jar until the next project comes along.
