How to Make Half-Moon Petal Envelopes

Read all of the steps before starting.
Step 1: Choose a Pattern and Print It

Choose an envelope to make. Download the pattern for the envelope and print it on computer paper or cardstock. Cardstock will make a sturdy envelope good for multiple uses.

There are three envelope designs with Easter and spring themes. There are also patterns for blank envelopes that are ready for your creative touch. The envelopes are square and come in two sizes: 4 and 5/8" (12 cm) and 2" (5 cm). Use the large size as a gift wrap and the small size for gift cards (or really little gifts).

Patterns for Half-Moon Petal Envelopes

Patterns are Adobe PDF files. The Adobe Reader is available for free.

All of Aunt Annie's Crafts project patterns are designed to be printed on standard letter-size paper (8.5"x11" or A4). When printing from Adobe Reader, you may need to select Auto-Rotate and Center or Choose paper source by PDF page size to ensure the best fit.

Step 2: Color and Decorate (optional)
Color the envelope and add creative touches.

Use colored pencils or markers to add color to the black & white patterns or to add your creative touch to the blank ones. Use your imagination!

Step 3: Cut

Cut out the envelope on the outline. Make smooth cuts around the flaps and sharp cuts into the corners. Also cut out the seals at the top of the pattern.

The seals can be used to hold the flaps closed, decorate an enclosed letter or card, or in any way you like.

Step 4: Fold

Fold each flap over and crease. For cardstock envelopes, score the fold lines first.

To close the envelope, fold each flap over in sequence and tuck one side of the last flap under the first flap. Folding the flaps clockwise and counter-clockwise produces different looks on the envelopes with designs.
