Wanessa from Wanessa Carolina Creationsand our new contributor, came up with these trendy DIY envelopes for spring that I just love!

She's designed three template sizes in both pastels and bright colors that you can easily download. Then follow her simple directions below and see what fantastic envelopes you can create!

These envelopes would work great for small gifts, little notes, or if you're hosting a spring party, how about little seed packet party favors? Plus the pastel envelopes match the adorable "Bunnies and Birds" Easter printables Wanessa designed.

  • Download the small envelopes
  • Cut out the envelopes and circles
  • Using a pen mark the place where you will place the fasteners
  • First, place the fastener through the paper circle, then through the envelope
  • Fold the sides, and apply glue on the very edge of the opposite side of the circle
  • Glue the bottom side
