I struggle with attractive gift presentation ideas. I wanted a nice and inexpensive way to present a gift card. I have some Spoonflower printed wrapping paper of some of my Dr Who inspired sketches and the weight of the paper is lovely. I thought about whipping up a quick envelope from the gift wrap with matching mini-card.
To make the envelope, I measured the size of the main motif on the wrapping paper (11.5cm square). This size will be the front of the gift envelope and I made the card around this size. I just added 2cm to each side and used the 1/3rd - 2/3rds rule for the top and bottom flaps. I have attached the template but feel free to adjust to the paper being used. I rounded the edges of the envelope corners.
I made a matching mini card by cutting a couple of the motifs from the wrapping paper and folding in half. A mini hole punch in the corner and a length of ribbon finished the card.
The total use of wrapping paper was only around an A4 size and the envelope was perfect for the gift.
