a happy first Friday to you all…..

before we get to today’s fab how-to….

ok, back to the business of the how-to….

these snappy diy envelopes are super easy and extremely versatile!

first:  select your music sheet

most vintage sheet music runs about 11″ by 14″ long.  this is a great size for a larger envelope.  you can cut your page down  depending on what size envelope you need.  this how-to will be using the entire sheet and making a larger envelope.  finished size:  5″ by 7 1/2″.

second: the folding of your envelope

working lengthwise, fold the bottom edge up approx. 1 1/2″ to 2″.

fold corners down to meet edge

take each side and fold in to the middle; overlapping folds

third:  punch holes to attach folds

working from the inside of your envelope, punch a hole going through all inside folds from both the top and bottom of your envelope.

fourth:  run ribbon, twine or string through the holes

tada!  and just look at all these uses!!
