DIY Share - Felt Gift Envelopes

DIY Pass Along:  Felt Gift Envelopes:

Hello everyone!  I found a how to guide (from Martha of course) for making these cute felt gift envelopes and I just had to share it with you.  I normally suggest using 100% wool felt in most projects but really any kind of felt is well suited to work with this craft. 

Felt Envelopes & Pockets

Compact discs, blank books, pencils, or diaries are ideal items to offer in these attractive pockets that can be saved and used as protective coverings. Use odd bits of ribbon (wide grosgrain works well) or felt for these gift wraps. If using ribbon, determine the amount needed by the size of the gift (allow about twice the length of the gift).

Tools and Materials:Wide grosgrain ribbon
Note cards

How-To1. Sew a line of stitches on ribbon ends to avoid fraying, and then sew ribbon into desired pocket size.
2. Insert present, and close with velvet or gauze ribbon. If using felt to make the wrap, sew two pieces together into the shape of a pocket, then make scalloped edges with pinking shears.
3. Tie with a bow, and attach a personalized note.
