diy: lace envelopes

 Just stumbled upon these and thought they were cute!


square lace doily ideas You need a square doily


Instructions:
Step 1: Create a template for the tracing paper/vellum


Step 2: Trace the template into the tracing paper and use cutter to cut it. But for the folded side in the middle, use the blunt edge of the cutter to give a folding mark.


Step 3: Spray the tracing paper with the Adhesive Spray. Don’t forget to put newspaper to cover the surrounding area. Leave it for 15 seconds. Carefully stick it to the doilies, make sure it fits perfectly.


Step 4: Fold the doilies to follow the tracing paper’s structure. Secure the inside of the envelope with double-sided tape. Voila! Beautifully hand-crafted envelope.

I know they have had lace dollies at the dollar store.  I'm not sure if they were square there though but hobby looby and michaels has them.

I think I would.  I would maybe see how study this is before deciding for sure though.  Otherwise, I would put the invite and doily then inside another envelope to mail.
