Make Felt Animal Envelopes

One of my favorite cheap craft supplies is felt. My local store has a price break when you buy three sheets, so every time I go in needing a sheet of one color I come out with two extras. Which, of course, has added up to quite a large felt stash over the years. So, what can you do with felt? Well, Eva at Handmade Charlotte used some to make these adorable animal envelopes! These would make a wonderful way to dress up a gift card or cash when giving it as a gift, with a much more creative presentation than just stuffing it into a card. They are the type of gifts that can sometimes seem impersonal, so presenting them in a thoughtful (and reusable) handmade container adds a personal touch. [how to make felt animal envelopes]
