Birthday Wishes Coin Envelope — By: Laura Nicholas

Laura’s pretty coin envelope makes a perfect place to tuck special birthday wishes, candy bar or a surprise gift card!



  1. Leaving the coin envelope unassembled, cover the top and bottom flaps with light pink texture paper. Cover one long flap with brown texture paper and the other with floral striped paper. Cover the back of the envelope with any coordinating paper.
  2. Ink the edges of each panel, then glue the envelope sides and bottom. Apply the zigzag rub-on overlapping the seam between the two long panels. Apply the scallop rub-on across the top of the top flap. Apply the floral rub-on randomly to the top and bottom flaps.
  3. Lightly sand a “wishes” Brad Buddy™ and the heart brad. Use the brad to attach the Brad Buddy™ to the envelope’s top flap. Cover the inside of the top flap with brown texture paper to cover the brad prongs.
  4. Computer journal “birthday” on white cardstock. Use the template to trace the smallest standard tag shape around the word, then cut out and ink the edges. Mat the tag on light pink texture paper and punch a hole in the tab. Loop embroidery floss through the hole, then wrap it around the left side of the Brad Buddy’s “w”. Glue the tag in place on the envelope flap.
