Here’s a fun craft from Martha Stewart that your kids can do. Use all those magazines we have lying around and use them to create handmade envelopes. These are great for holiday letter or to “wrap” a gift card or CDs
To do it, just unfold a regular envelope. Choose patterned paper larger than that envelope. Trace the envelope onto the paper. Then just cut and fold using the envelope as a guide. Use a glue stick to secure the edges.
If you opt to do this for mailed items, pick a sturdier paper and add a mailing label.
