DIY Favors: Brownie Mix Envelopes with Button Closure
Continuing on with this weeks Olympic spirit - - - a little Red, White & Blue DIY for you!
From my besties recent “Look Whoo’s Having a Baby” Shower, the favors: Brownie Mix Envelopes!
Brownie Mix (make your own or use a boxed mix)
Small “treat” sized plastic sacks
Using a scrap piece of paper, design your envelope template to fit the size of paper you will be using for your envelope. Mine had 4 “bendable” flaps – 2 with blunt corners and 2 with pointed corners.
Using a pencil and your home-made envelope template, trace out as many envelopes as you need onto scrapbook paper.
Step 3: Cut out your traced envelopes.
Step 4: Fold the traced & cut paper into envelope style.
Taking a button, needle & piece of thread, sew a button onto the 2 outer envelope flaps. This will become your closure.
Place brownie mix into small treat sacks and secure into inner envelope with tape.
Taking a piece of thread, “enclose” the envelope by using a “figure 8” of thread around the 2 outer buttons.
Stack & hot glue cupcake wrappers onto the envelope, adding a button flourish to the top– creating a “poppy” flower detail.
Write or print brownie baking instruction label and attach via enclosure thread.
