7 Envelope Craft For Kids


Envelopes are a simple yet elegant way to store and organize small items. They’re great for holding small trinkets, jewelry, or other keepsakes that you want to keep safe and secure. They can also be used as gift packaging or even turned into a decorative piece of art on their own! Envelopes make great crafts for kids, too! Here are seven fun ideas that will inspire you and your little ones:

Organize Small Items

Envelopes can be useful for organizing small items, such as craft supplies, office supplies, toys and kitchen and bathroom supplies. For example:

  • Craft Supplies
  • Office Supplies
  • Toys (e.g., Legos)
  • Kitchen Supplies (e.g., measuring spoons) * Bathroom Supplies

Envelope Punch Board Boxes

This is a fun craft for kids! You can use an envelope punch board to make a small box. You can decorate the box with paper, stickers and paint. Then you can use the box to store small items. You can also make a gift out of it by putting things such as candy inside or tucking in some money!

The envelope punch board method works well for making boxes but it does not work well for making envelopes. You will still need to fold your paper when making an envelope if you want that shape.

Origami Envelope

Origami is the art of folding paper into shapes. Origami envelopes are one of the easiest origami projects you can make, and they’re also a great way to get started with origami if you’ve never done it before. This easy envelope craft is perfect for kids and adults alike, so grab your paper and let’s get started!

  • What You’ll Need:
  • Paper (preferably square)
  • Scissors

Envelope Pillow

Let’s get started with the envelope pillow.

  • First, you will need an envelope (preferably one that is flat). If you don’t have any lying around, you can always make one by folding a piece of paper in half and then cutting it down the center.
  • Next, take your pillow insert and insert it into the envelope by placing it face down on top of the open end of the envelope so that only half of your pillow filler shows through at each end.. This will give your pillow a nice rounded shape when finished!
  • Finally, add some decorative handle ties if desired using ribbon or string from your craft closet! Then put all three pieces together by slipping them inside a decorative pillowcase or case cover!

Envelope Wall Organizer

Envelope organizers are a fun way to store and organize small items. They’re also super easy to make, so you can create one in just a few minutes.

The envelope wall organizer is a perfect place for kids to store their favorite pens and pencils, markers and crayons. It’s also a great way for them to keep their more delicate toys like dolls and action figures safe from harm—just make sure they don’t accidentally tear the envelopes!

Book Sleeve

Use an envelope to protect a book:

A book sleeve is a simple and effective way to protect small books. It’s also the perfect solution for storing old, precious books that you don’t want getting damaged or stained. The best part is that it only takes a few minutes to make!

What You’ll Need:

  • A piece of cardboard (or foam board) big enough to fit inside your envelope
  • Contact paper (optional) – this will protect the envelope from ink stains if you plan on using it frequently as a bookmark or other accessory

To get started on your envelope craft project, gather together some paper envelopes (or other box-like shapes like boxes or shoe boxes) along with some paints or stickers that appeal to you.
