DO-IT-YOURSELF Gift Envelopes for Rakhi

Festivals are just around the corner.So are you getting ready for it? Giving and receiving gifts is definitely part of all the festive fun.

Rakshabandhan the festival,celebrating the relationship between brothers and sisters is just a week away.So the custom is...the sister ties a sacred thread around the wrist of her dear brother and the brother is supposed to gift his sister. As little kids celebrate the festival,parents hand over some cash to the boy who in turn gifts it to his sister.

So today let us try out an easy- peasy DIY to make money envelopes.It is very easy so you can even encourage your young boy to make it himself probably with a little help from you and fill it with money from his piggy bank and hand over to his sister on Rakhi!

Take four circles of similar sized handmade paper

Fold each circle in half

Now we have to stick each circle over the other in the manner shown

Stick the last piece onto the rest of the 3 pieces as well!
So this is what we have now...Keep the money in between  and secure it with a twine or a wool
Wasn't that easy?

Your money envelope is ready! Embellish it the way you want!
Some points to note:

1. I made these using an invitation card but you can use handmade paper for enhanced effect.

2.You can embellish it with quilled flowers, real rose buds, faux paper flower or anything that you like!

3. If you want to make a bigger envelope just increase the diameter of the circles.

4.You can even personalise by writing notes for your sister on either side of the envelope

5. Last but not the least you can make such envelopes and keep them handy for future use.Many a times I have had to rush to the nearest stationery shop when invited for a wedding.
