Hello creative friends,
Just a quick post today to share these sweet little button and string sewing envelopes with you.
Aren’t they just the cutest!
[PIN for later]
They are quite petite, measuring just 7 cm x 10 cm (2 3/4″ x 4″)…..
But the perfect size to tuck into a pocket of a journal, notebook or handmade card.
The front of the sewing envelopes feature pages from a vintage haberdashery catalogue, while the back is a pretty pink patchwork fabric paper I made today.
Do you like them?
How would you use them?
This ‘print and make’ project is so quick and easy to put together, you’ll knock these out in just a few minutes… and there’s a handy tutorial below.

How to Make
- Download and print the free printable PDF and the cut out envelopes with a sharp craft knife.
- Score the perimeter of the front graphic using a bone folder and score board. Fold all four edges to the back.
3. If you choose to ink the edges of the envelope and buttons, please do that now. The buttons have been attached with small paper fasteners – one in the middle of the top fold down flap and the other in the middle of the back envelope panel. This needs to be done before the envelop is glued together.
4. The final step is to run a small bead of white glue along the two tabs and fold the back panel over and stick down. You can glue the tab at the bottom either under the back panel or over the top of it… I’ve shown it both ways. Use a small length of cord, floss or wool to tie around your buttons to close the envelope.
That’s it… super easy…. but very cute!
Hope you enjoy this fun little project!
Happy crafting my friends!
