Impressive Handmade Letters and Envelopes

With email and social media becoming ever popular, receiving a letter every once in a while makes everyone happy!
You can create letters and envelopes all by yourself, and make them special.
Now we’ll walk you through how to do that with design paper. Send handmade letters to bring a ray of sunshine to friends you haven't seen for a long time, or someone you really care!

You will need...


< For one envelope, two sheets of A5 size letter >
  • Two sheets of A4 size design paper (printed on plain paper)


  • Commercially available envelopes
  • Scissors or any other cutting instrument
  • Glue, double-sided tape, or adhesive tabs
  • Pencils

Before you start

  • Peel off all of the glue from the commercially available envelope you prepared and unfold it.
  • Make sure you have your design paper ready.
  • Don’t forget, you can print design paper using the smartphone app "Epson Creative Print".

How to

1 Place one sheet of design paper with the printed side facing down, place the unfolded envelope in the center of the paper, and then trace the edge.
We recommend keeping the unfolded envelope because it can be used as a template.
2 Cut along the traced line with scissors.
3 Make creases the same as the unfolded envelope, apply glue as shown in the image (light blue part), and then fold the paper to glue it.
4 Cut another sheet of A4 size design paper in two, and there you have a handmade letter and envelope!
If you prefer lined letter paper, give the "Epson Creative Print" a whirl!

Install the app and fire it up!
