OMG this way lies madness. Yes, I have envelopes. I even have envelopes I have made from old giftwrap, and even from giftwrap that I made myself by hand-lettering over brown kraft paper. But I did not make the patterns for those envelopes myself. I used the clever plastic templates that I purchased some years ago (kreate-a-lope) in several standard sizes, when I was still trying to figure out what to do with all the handmade paper. Still haven't entirely worked that out, although I won't say I've given up.
Complicated! I tried the anchor envelope - because I couldn't visualize it from the instructions - went fine til the last step, where I have no idea how you actually tuck those little flaps inside and behind! Magic little elves!
