Petal envelopes add a touch of elegance to your invitations. To make the above project either buy a pochette style envelope from a paper supplier (it must measure 5.25 x 5.25 inches when folded) or download the petal patterns from this site. We have provided a pdf template or if you are lucky enough to own a paper cutting machine, a wpc file is also available.
A word to the wise: if you are making lots and lots of invitations it is easier just to stick with the premade envelopes!!
