Step 2. Assembling the Envelopes
Starting with the envelope main piece
money envelope main piece
gift card envelope main piece
fold them on the score lines
Note the money envelope has a half circle at the top of it and the gift card envelope does not.
Using double sided tape put the tape either on the flaps or the sides of the bottom of the envelope
Fold the bottom piece of the envelope up so that it adheres to the flaps
The half circle at the top of the money envelope will slip into the slit on the lower part of the envelope
Now you are ready to add the panels to the back of the envelope
money envelope panels
gift card envelope panels
Using double sided tape, put tape on the back of the upper panel and tape it to the top of the back of the envelope
Next using double sided tape, put tape on the back of the lower panel and tape it to the bottom of the envelope back
Now you are ready to decorate the front of the envelopes
