Inkling: window envelope gift cards

I’ve found one good thing about junk mail and bills. You can reuse the window envelopes to make a cute craft.

To make these little gift cards, cut a window into a piece of cardstock.
Cut out the window portion from your junk mail window envelope and fold in half.
Add colorful paper punches. For mine I added the letter printouts “BFF” and “I heart U” for some extra cuteness. Glue the edges of the window closed and glue onto the back side of your card window. Cover the backside of the window with another piece of paper so that when you open the card you don’t see the window.

Micro hole punch the top corner and add a string.

And “I heart U” for visiting my blog!


  1. What a wonderful - and simple - idea. I think I will never throw away envelopes again... Ever! =)
