If you’re looking for fun ways to decorate envelopes, then you’ve come to the right place!
Today I’m sharing how to decorate envelopes and make them extra special. Not only are the ideas easy, but they’re really inexpensive!
I love greeting cards. (Before I had kids, I worked at a Hallmark subsidiary designing cards.)
And, it’s a bonus if they have colored envelopes!
This is where I like to make my cards a little extra special and give them my DIY touch. And I promise these envelope decorating ideas are easy!
One way to decorate these envelopes is with washi tape. I found my rolls for around $1 in the craft department at Walmart. Washi tapes come in endless patterns and are really easy to work with since it can be removed if you mess up.
See how much fun this tape is?
I love buntings. Buntings just scream celebration. All you need to do to create your own washi tape bunting is draw a line on your envelope. If you’re sending the card, keep in mind the return address and stamp placement.
Next, cut small pieces of the tape and draw triangles along the bottom.
Once the triangles are cut out, place your little “flags” along the line you drew. That’s all you need to do to make an adorable bunting.
I also lined the envelope flap with tape.
And I created a bunting using triangles I cut from the washi tape.
Here’s another little envelope craft that cost me nothing since I already had the supplies on hand. All you need is an unused pencil eraser and an ink pad.
The pencil eraser becomes your stamp. Just keep the eraser flat, and you’ll have perfect little dots.
It’s so easy!
I’m now stocked up and ready for all my nieces’ and nephews’ birthdays for the next year.

I love your cute ideas for decorating envelopes. I love to decorate my envelopes as well. I like to put scripture on the outside of the envelopes, something that will be uplifting to the receiver.
Love your ideas on creating as well. Always look forward to getting your emails.

Thanks so much for commenting, Meloni! I love that you add scripture to the envelope. It may be more than just the receiver who’s being uplifted…
How do you put scripture on the outside of an envelope?
I made a wedding card and am looking for ways to dress up the envelope.
I will probably go w combination of Sara’s ideas and yours, Meloni.
Thank you BOTH!
I love this idea! It’s so creative and definitely makes a 47 cent card seem much more custom and personalized! #client
