For this month’s free Craft Camp project, Emily is showing you how to make these adorable felt envelopes for Valentine’s Day. Craft them for your kids as a gift, and slip a sweet handwritten note inside. Or, depending on your kid’s age, this could be a fun craft project you do together.
If you’re a member, you can also make our felt play mailbox to go along with them.
Deliver a cute DIY craft
Ready to start crafting? Our video tutorial will show you how to make a no-sew version and a stitched version. Try them both, or pick the one you like best!
Everything we used for both versions of this felt craft is linked below, but you can always use whatever you have on hand. You can also use our printable template or SVG file (at the end of the post) to make as many felt envelopes as you’d like in all kinds of color variations. Once your envelopes are assembled and gifted, they can be used long past the holiday for pretend play.
