You know how there are some things that we feel we could just do all day, like lounge by the beach or luxuriate in hours-long spa activities?
Also, make tiny envelopes.
Probably a very small margin there, but that's almost what I did last Sunday. Trust me, this could get addictive.
Made with the Xcut Mini Envelope Die Set, these teeny tiny babies are great for adding mini pockets to your planners (you could even make matching and fully functional envelope paperclips), sending little (likely, one-word) notes, or making an envelope booklet with tiny trinkets in each. Just about anything you could use an envelope for.
The finished envelopes are approximately 3.5 cm x 2.5 cm. The die itself is roughly a 2-inch square, so it can fit all die-cutting machine sizes, including your Tattered Lace Baby Blue, Spellbinder Prizm or other smaller-sized machines.
Tip: These envelopes were made with the Prima Rose Quartz Collection. Sometimes with papercrafting, one of the things that we easily overlook is picking the right prints. Consider the output of your projects–if you're making tiny envelopes, it would make good sense to pick paper with smaller prints. Otherwise, the prints would just eat up your project's real estate without the elements being defined (e. g. a 4-inch rose will not look so much like a rose in 2-inch output.)
The die-cuts are fully functional envelopes, meaning you could use it as an actual envelope, just much, much... much smaller than the regular ones. There's a very small margin for gluing so I use the Tattered Lace Detail Glue to be able to cleanly and precisely stick the edges together.
The Xcut Mini Envelope Die Set is in fact a pair of dies. Apart from the main envelope, it also comes with a rectangular die perfect for labels or to create a clear window for your envelope.
But that window doesn't have to be simply rectangular, right? Take things further by cutting shapes or better yet, monogram them. Here, I used the Xcut Mini Alpha (serif, lowercase) sets. The letters are anywhere between 1 and 1.5 cm. which fits and matches perfectly with my envelopes.
I am pretty sure you can think of a lot of things for mini envelopes too! Give it a try.
