Shagun Envelope Tutorial - Dimensional Gift Envelopes for cash gifts!

11:00 am Ujjwal 6 Comments


This is Ujjwal and today I am sharing a tutorial on how to make a dimensional gift envelope or a shagun envelope. Cash gifts are pretty common in India, especially at weddings, so I thought it would be fun to create a dimensional envelope using The Wedding Collection Kit.

 And here's how the back side looks like. I added a pearl with twine to the flap for little more interest.

And here's how I made it. 
Start with a 9.75" X 7.5" piece of cardstock. I used the beautiful pearl cardstock from "The Wedding" Kit.
Score and cut as per the template below.

This is how the cardstock will look like after scoring.

At this point, you can decide how to decorate and what kind of closure you would want for the back flap of the envelope. I decided to give the flap a simple triangular cut and a velcro closure but you can use decorative dies, laces or whatever else you fancy. Instead of velcro, you could use a magnetic or a ribbon closure.

Fold the envelope and glue the bottom flap so that it forms the envelope shape like this

And then decorate and embellish as you like. I used the pattern papers from "The Wedding" Collection, some mulberry flowers and pollens and liquid pearls to decorate the front. I left the back simple with a little twine and pearl add on.

I hope you enjoyed this project and tutorial!
