Pushing the Envelope in 7 Steps

As an artist, watching your child spontaneously pick up a pen and create a great birthday card, is a fabulous thing to behold. As a parent, it's even better.

Quinn drew a great card last weekend - that I won't show you here because the birthday hasn't occurred yet - but I had nothing appropriately special in my supply of envelopes. So I made one for him. Follow along and you can make one too:

1. Place card (blue) on paper wide enough to cover it when folded over
2. Fold along the red lines
3. Cut out the grey-blocked areas
4. Fold along the grey lines
5. Cut out the purple areas
6. Fold large flap from bottom up and glue to folded-in side flaps
7. Fold small top flap over and tuck inside
