Can you wrap your head around the fact that Christmas is just over 2 weeks away? I sure can’t. Preparing for Christmas this year has been a whirlwind.
Since I know most of you are in the process of getting your cards ready to mail, I thought I’d share some fun and easy Christmas card envelope decorating ideas with you. Enjoy and be inspired!
Check out these creative ideas for personalizing Christmas envelopes and let me know which is your favorite!
CREATIVE IDEAS TO PERSONALIZE YOUR CHRISTMAS CARD ENVELOPES
PRETTY POSTAGE: There are some cool postage stamps available from the post office and just a few fancy ones will give your envelope a special touch. Buy holiday stamps in small denominations that equal the postage amount and pile them on the front of you envelope to make it festive.

WAX SEALS: I love the look of a stylish sticker to seal the flap of an envelope and a wax seal takes that look up a notch. A personalized wax seal also makes a great gift for a girlfriend or newlyweds.
PERSONALIZED STAMPS: Personalized stamps are an easy way to customize envelopes for home or business use. Paper Source has a great selection of personalized stamps in both everyday and seasonal designs. And when it comes to gift giving, a personalized stamp make a great gift too!
FABRIC ENVELOPES: If you want to put your crafting skills to work, try making a fabric envelope for your cards. Buy a fat quarter fabric bundle from JoAnn Fabric and use a paper envelope as a template to cut our the envelope shape. If you’re planning to mail ( versus hand deliver) your envelopes make sure to stitch the flap closed and ask the post office to hand cancel the postage instead of running it through their machines.
LINED ENVELOPES: You can add high style to plain envelopes by lining them with decorative paper, gift wrap or a paper doily that coordinates with the colors or style of your Christmas card.
STAMPED ENVELOPES: A super simple way to create stylish envelopes is by stamping a polka dot design on the inside flap. No stamp required, just use a pencil eraser and colorful ink to create your pattern.
WASHI TAPE ENVELOPES: One of my favorite crafting supplies is decorative washi tape. You can use it to UpStyle an envelope by lining the outer edge or I love the idea of using a strip of tape under the postage stamp.
As you can see from all of these ideas, it’s really easy to dress up your Christmas card envelopes. I’ll be working on my Christmas cards this weekend and will definitely be putting some of these ideas to use.
