Valentine Felt Envelope Craft

For Valentine’s Day I like to tuck little notes in the kid’s lunchbox or next to Rob’s night stand.  Doing this gives them a little surprise just letting them know how much I love them. This year I’m taking it a step further by using these Handmade Felt Envelopes to hold my love notes.

I made these using a sewing machine but a good ole needle and thread would work just fine too. These don’t have to be for just Valentine’s Day either.  I’m thinking pretty blues, greens and pinks for spring time or to even celebrate birthdays and anniversaries.

Materials Needed

  • Felt
  • button
  • needle & thread or sewing machine
  • glue

Directions

Cut your felt into a long rectangle with a triangle at the top. You can easily go wide to fit sheets of paper but make sure it’s tall enough to fold then also have enough for the fold over flap. I didn’t make mine any particular measurement.

Use a decorative button so you’ll be able to close your envelope.  Velcro or snaps would work too but buttons work for me.   Use straight pins or safety pins or even binder clips to get your folds in the right spot. Do this before sewing your envelope together.

Choose a contrasting thread and sew the sides and bottom of your envelope shape.  I used a zig zag pattern with my sewing machine but a wide running would look great too if you had to sew by hand. Cute a small hole in your flap for the button hole.

School glue is the simplest way to adhere your “stamps”.  Sewing these down would look great too. Pink shears would’ve given these stamps an endearing quality but I don’t have a pair.

Once the glue has dried they are ready to use for notes, candy hearts or favorite valentine chocolates.

If you want to make these with children just skip the sewing step and go with fabric glue to hold the sides together.  Decorate with glitter glue, buttons or rhinestones to make it a true gift from your child.

  1. What a cute idea. I might have my boys make these to present valentine’s to each other in :)

  2. These are adorable! I think my daughter would really enjoy making these for her friends at school. She is very crafty like mommy and loves adding a personal touch to her gifts.

  3. Very cute – we could use these year round. And good for you working with that singer – I HATE top loading bobbins! ;)

  4. Those are adorable! I have been wanting to invest in a sewing machine for years but just haven’t gotten one yet. My daughter could probably make those on her own now as a teen!

  5. Love it! My goal this year is to learn how to use the sewing machine. My MIL gave me one and it has been sitting in the attic. Time to find tutorials and learn!

  6. those are SO cute. i love them. and yes pinking shears!! the only reason i have some is i inherited mine from my mom

  7. I love the idea of these Valentine Felt Envelopes! These are totally unique and would let you write your own notes inside, unlike the store-bought valentines that come with pre-written messages.

    Are you kidding me?! These are so adorable. There is no way I could make these, but I am in awe that you can.

  9. OH, my daughter would love making these for her friends! I’ll have to print these up and put it by the sewing machine.

  10. Those are super cute! My oldest loves getting notes from me, but I’m horrible about remembering to make them.

  14. Amy Desrosiers says:

    I really love these and would love to make them! I just wish I could actually sew!!

  15. Very cute idea. I really need to start being more crafty. MY 5 year old son seems to really appreciate it. His face always lights up when I create something new and he’ll say. How’d you do that mommy?! As if I were a major artist of sorts.

  16. What an adorable little holder for candy or a card or a tiny gift for Vday. I think kids and adults will appreciate these.

  17. Melinda, these are adorable!! This would be really fun to do with my little girlies too! Thanks for the idea.

  27. How special! I heart these so much I pinned them.I hope you dont’ mind. I also Skinny Scooped them.

  28. This is a perfect idea! We have many customers looking for ideas on how to use their left over leather scraps after they are finished with their projects! Perfect little idea! I also love the idea for lunch money for the kiddos! Simple, sleek & stylish enough to slip into a pocket and protect the lunch money from slipping away! :)
