Keira was given this wooden envelope template for her birthday. By me, that is. Umm yes, it's possible I bought my daughter a gift that I wanted to use myself. But in my defence, she had seen them in the shop a few times and asked me for one.
Anyway, we've had some good times with it already. One afternoon we sat at the kitchen table with a big stack of papers (the envelopes shown here were made with some pages from an old gardening catalogue) and scissors, listening to our favourite songs and producing a small mountain of new envelopes for our letter-writing supply cupboard (Doesn't everyone have one of those?)
I bought the wooden template from our lovely local craft store Stitchbird though you can probably find them on Etsy too.
