Need a super-easy Valentine’s Day idea?

I made this DIY Valentine’s Day envelope with staples today and filled it with a little chocolate treat.

You can make a small envelope or a bigger one, depending on the kind of treat you want to put into it, and it only take a few minutes to make.

These envelopes make perfect little handmade gifts for your husband or boyfriend, or for your child or his/her classmates.

Envelope With Staples Tutorial:

Supplies:

  • red or pink or white craft paper
  • stapler
  • scissors
  • candy or chocolates or other treats or little gifts
  • optional: heart stickers, Sharpie to write on the envelope

To make the triangle, I found the center of the top of the page by putting the two corners together and pinched the middle. Then I folded the corners down to make the triangle for the envelope closure.

DIY Valentine's Day envelope with staplesI stapled the two triangles down and then stapled the sides closed. I could have also glued down the corners.
