Creating your own custom envelopes is a cinch with the Kreate-a-lope® envelope template! Nick Romer, the creator of these handy templates, sent a couple of sizes for me to try out and review. I received the A2 standard invitation size and the A7 size template. You can check out the Kreate-a-lope® Video for all the details on how to use this product.
I gathered together some of my favorite papers so I would have a variety to experiment with including: light-weight scrapbook paper, handmade paper, a page from an old atlas, vintage sheet music, vintage dictionary paper, and a couple of discarded road maps.
In the end, the vintage sheet music and the atlas page turned out to be my favorite envelopes! I’m especially smitten with the map envelopes. They would be ideal for a travel-themed wedding and could be customized to feature the couple’s home city or state, the wedding location, or even the honeymoon destination!
Over all the templates are very easy to use, and provide a great way to upcylcle all those pretty papers you’ve been collecting! Shown above are my top 5 tips for using the Kreate-a-lope® based on my own experience. I am so happy to have a way to put that vast pile of papers in my studio to good use. Many thanks to Nick Romer for sponsoring this post and sharing such a great product.
