Ribbon Closure Tutorial

Start with envelope template. Sew and secure edges with tape if you like to sew your edges

Fold you top and bottom edges and mark where you want to place you eyelets
Make larger holes (I use exacto knife)
Inset eyelets into holes (make sure the good side is facing out!!)
Use your setter tool and hammer the eyelets down
Cut two equal pieces of ribbon
Insert ribbon from the front through the eyelet and secure with some tape
Cut your envelope liner and glue into place on the top flat, covering your stitching and ribbon, Repeat process for the other side.

  1. Thanks. I never thought to use ribbons on envelopes. Would this just be for hand-giving cards or to go through mail too?
