I used 4×5 inch blank notecards so I cut pieces of Kraft paper to measure 4.5×11 inches. Fold each piece of Kraft paper in half and sew down the two longer sides using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
To make the cards, I placed a strip of the decorative tape near the bottom of the front of the blank card, leaving about 1/2 inch white space.
You could use the coordinating gift labels on the outside of the envelopes or just handwrite the name of the recipient. I used the decorative packing tape to close the open edge of the envelope for a nice coordinated look 🙂
