Make your own envelope tree


This Advent is ideal for gifting vouchers or other paper-based treats

This is a quick and easy creation, and looks really striking once it’s displayed in your home. To make your own, buy a variety of differently sized and coloured envelopes (we sourced ours from Hobbycraft) and onto each, write a number from 1 - 24. We found it helpful to lay out our tree design on the floor before writing the numbers, to ensure we had mixed them up sufficiently. Use Command adhesive strips to fix the finished envelopes to the wall, then place your gifts into each before sealing them shut.
