Gears Embossed Envelope

Gears Embossed Envelope

Hello crafty makers!  Today I’m sharing how to make this 3D embossed gears envelope.  It’s perfect for adding texture and style to an otherwise plain and boring envelope.  It will also take your handmade cards to the next level!  This envelope coordinates perfectly with the gears dad card.  If you’re interested in the matching card, you can find the tutorial here.

This envelope is for 4 bar sized cards.  When assembled, the dimensions of the envelope are 5 – 1/4″ x 3 – 7/8″.  If you’re planning on sending these through the mail then I would recommend putting it into a larger envelope or a small mailer.
