We often give gift vouchers, money, jewellery and small items not knowing how to present them well, but by making a handmade envelope you can create a beautiful bespoke pouch for your ﬂat-shaped gift. Thick paper works well for this, and it is a great way to use up remnants of paper too.
In this simple step-by-step tutorial, Jane Means will show you how to present your odd-shaped gifts in style with this versatile paper envelope.
