I have a lot to be thankful for! This time, I’m saying thanks to some people that been really helpful to my mom. Since she is no longer driving, they have been taking her around to places she needs to go. I bought them a couple gift cards and made these envelopes to hold them to thank them for their help. Here is my tutorial for how to make an envelope out of circles.

Punch out four circles.  The bigger the better!  If you do not have a craft punch you can always trace a glass or plastic container lid with pencil and cut the circles out with scissors. Once you have your four circles, fold each one in half. Arrange the folded circles to form a square, overlapping the flaps.  Glue down the flaps.  Insert your note, photo, or gift card into the envelope and glue or tape shut.  You can also tie a ribbon around it.

Note about sizes: If you have 3” in diameter circles you will have a 3” square envelope.

Make these easy square envelopes in any color or pattern you wish.  Just change up the paper! Here is another one I made with four different patterns. As you can see, you can completely change the look to go with any style or theme. This envelope was made for my husband for our ten year anniversary.
