Ideas for Masculine Cards and Wrapping
The tutorial for this candy wrapper was found at this blog.She has a lot of 3D designs, in case you like creating 3D designs like me! The jacket size is based on the candy bar you select, so you can personalize it.
I scored the edges of the envelope to give it more dimension, but for something flat like a gift card, you could keep the envelope flat. In case you can not see in the photo, the security pattern is cut and folded down to form the collar.
The tie die is available on Amazon. I purchased it from a shop in Spartanburg, SC, but if you do a search for tie die.....well, you can figure that out!
Years ago, I first did my tie in the pattern of security envelopes like below. Now, I don't get so much snail mail anymore, so I just ran some new envelopes through the quarter inch (non shredding) paper shredder to create strips. I guess it is not so much iris "folding" this way, as there is no folding, but it sure cuts down on time and bulk! I found the shredder at Goodwill as most all of the new ones now shred.
