Homemade Envelopes from the Heart

I won!

Yes, I enter giveaways too, and I love getting fun new crafty goods to play with. Recently I attended the CHA conference, and met the fun team over at Me & My Big Ideas and entered their giveaway for a prize pack celebrating their 15 years of BIG ideas.

No, this isn’t a sponsored post. I am genuinely delighted to be a winner and when my prize pack arrived in the mail a couple days ago, I couldn’t wait to craft with them.

Hence, today’s craft idea – Homemade Envelopes from the Heart – or How to make a homemade envelope with a cut out heart and jazz it up cool love notes and fun stickers.

Easy Homemade Valentines Craft Idea

Out of my box of goodies I picked some of the themed cards for their Pocket Pages™ line and some super cute dimensional stickers from their Mambi Sticks™ line.

I also grabbed some coordinating color letter-sized paper and a scissors to make the envelopes from.

The themed cards come with 72 designs and usually retail for $4.99, and the mini sheet of stickers usually retail for $1.99 each.

I wanted to use the themed cards as little LOVE notes to enclose in my envelopes and I thought the stickers would be perfect to incorporate into a super easy and fun way to make your own envelope.


Here is how you make your own cute heart-shaped envelope:

Start with a piece of letter-sized paper. I used colored paper that coordinated with the cards. You can see the size difference between the LOVE note and the paper.

How to make a homemade envelope from a heart shape

Fold your paper in half and, just like you were taught in grade school, cut out a large heart. Cut the heart as big as your paper will allow.


Now, here is the fun part!

Place your note right in the middle of your heart shape upside-down. Don’t worry, it will make sense in a minute.

Then, using the edges of your card as a guide, fold in the outer edges of your heart shape.

Fold up the bottom edge, and then complete your envelope by folding down the top.

Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!

Once you have nestled your LOVE note inside the homemade heart envelope, have fun decorating and securing it with stickers.

I snuck a LOVE note in my daughter’s lunch, and I got my hugs and kisses back from her when she got home.

The envelope looks like a regular envelope, but once someone opens it, they get a little extra love and see the heart shape.
