This weekend I am not making a card but a set of envelopes to fit your 3×3 cards.  I had an eye on these cute little envelopes by Maya Road here but they are always out of stock. So I decided I should make my own.

Enjoy the video and scroll down to download the templates.

Don’t forget to leave a comment cause I love reading them.

Your Creations:


  1. CUTE! CUTE! CUTE! Can’t wait to make some of these, just waiting for more ink for my printer to be here by middle of next week. THANKS for sharing such a cute, and fun idea, and I LOVE how they totally fit those adorable cards you made last week!
    (*also I wanted to let you know that I keep coming back to your tutorials and it’s with out alot of chit chat that sometimes can take up too much time, yours are simple and easy to follow).

  2. What an outstandning video and template, Vicky !! I just love watching you “in action”! It’s too bad that I passed up a sale of a crop-a -dile and your video is actually the first time that I see how it’s being used!! Next time I will get one! Your cards and video are so very inspiring!! (I’m not just saying that because your wonderful DH helped me out with inlinkz -LOL!!).

  3. Another very useful and well done video, Vicki. I’m thinking about how to use those envelopes, they’re so cute, thanks for sharing and providing the template!

  4. very cute cant wait to mak v-day cards and use these envolopes… i have a cricut at what size do i put to make it a 3×3 envolopes? tfs joi

    1. Not sure I understand the question. The templates are already sized for 3×3 cards… You can send me an email if you like, just use my “contact me” form at the sidebar. I’ll do my best to help 🙂

  5. These are spectacular! But I’m not surprised–your creations are ALWAYS fab! Thanks for all that you share so freely! You are so GENEROUS!

  7. Really cute envelopes!!!

    I love the paper you used.

    I would like to ask you something…

    I don’t own a craftrobo… so…do you have any alternatives?

    thanks for your time!

    1. What is the file format you would like? If you don’t have a digital cutter you can use the .pdf formats to print and cut with scissors. Let me know!

  8. Hi Vicky

    Well what an ingenious way to create these envelopes. I do have some maya road ones already and I think yours look just as nice. Thanks for the templates. Tell me how did you make the little circles at the back with the holes they look so professional. Another job well done. Be looking forward to next week.

  9. Hi, I’m a lurker who’s liked your blog from the beginning. Thanks for the SVG files, I’ve liked a lot of them but this is my favorite! I’ve been eyeing those cards at 2peas since Kristina Werner showed us them. This is a great way to make them ourselves. Thanks for all the hard work and the videos!

  10. I love these mini envelopes, they’re so cute and so perfect for the 3×3 cards. I can’t wait to make these, and THANK YOU very, very much for including the gsd and other formats!

    The video is great too!!!!


  11. Thank you so much for sharing these templates. I will definitely be using them…so glad you have them as svg’s too as I am not good at cutting things without leaving some jagged lines.

  12. Thank you so much for including the SVG download in your blog post….I saw your post on the SCS blog forum…. I’m really glad I checked in here….Micki

  13. What I want my money back!!!! wahhhh
    I want a tutorial on the super cute cards…wahhhhh

    seriously though the envelopes are very cute but the cards are to die for ……….can we expect another video??

  14. I just found your site today and am spending WAY too much time on here–your work is amazing! And I love these envelopes! I saw the Maya Road ones on another site and, you’re right, they’re hard to find in stock. So, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for making these files for us! Now I can make them anytime I want and in any color, though I really do love them in kraft.

  15. Came across your site while look at someone’s site. neat little envelopes, always looking for another way to make a note card envelope.. thanks for sharing..

  16. I read about your blog on Kristina Werner’s blog. I love your work. I’m looking forward to visiting your blog in the future.

  17. What a great idea and so cute! Have seen the MR ones, but never thought to give it a go. You’re a genius.

  18. I absolutely love these! They would also be cute for putting some extra photos in for a scrapbook layout. I’m sure there are many other uses too! TFS! Love that you included a video too. This is my first visit to your site and am bookmarking it for sure!

  19. These are too cute. Thank you so much for sharing them! I am very new to using a die cutter and appreciate it so much when others share their beautiful and hard work.

  20. Thank you! Those are awesome! I bought some scrapbook paper to try some envelopes with but don’t have a template yet, so that’s perfect.

    1. I mostly use Inkscape. But I think those envelopes were created using Illustrator. I prefer Inkscape though since it’s free to download 🙂

  21. These are wonderful! I’ll use them on my Expression. Thanks so very much.

    I’m also looking for a envelope template 3.75×2.75, any suggestions?

    Thanks again.

  22. No electronic die cutting machine here so thanks for the PDF! And they all look like I can cute w/ scissors (and I can use my crop-a-dile for the holes)! I was just trolling the 2p’s store and the Maya envelopes like these were out of stock for me too–thank you for the free download!!! I’ve wanted this style and size forever!

  23. Thank you so much for the envelope templates!!

    I don’t have a cutter, so I really appreciate you doing the other formats!!

    Thanks again!

  24. Thanks so much for sharing these files over A Cut Above. I also loved these Maya envelopes and now they are harder than ever to find, so it was great to see them in the Gallery!!

    You are always so generous and I totally enjoy your blog and your vidoes! Thanks Vicky and see you in class!


  25. These are darling envelopes. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us. I love them and love making my own envelopes!

  26. Hi, I saw them and are cute, do you have them por Silhouette Cameo??? I think is: *.studio. Thanks in advanced for your help.

    1. Sorry, they are only available in the formats mentioned. These are old files I made years ago when Cameo wasn’t an option! Thanks for visiting.

  27. I want to thank you so much for your video, you have answered so many questions for me about putting a tie clasp on. Please can you recommend what would be the best way to cut out cute envelopes? Templates? Cricut? Diecast? I don’t cut out well, not a steady hand, I would love to know. Can I share with you my envelopes??

    Again thank you, your the best!!!

    1. hi Jennifer and thank you for your lovely comment! I am not making my own envelopes… so I am not the best person to ask about that… sorry… however i do have the Martha Stewart Scoring board (the big one) that comes together with an extra tool and measures to create your own envelopes. But haven’t really used it…

  28. Does this still work. I can’t get this envelope to download. I am on an iPad , does that make a difference?

    1. Never tried this on ipad… maybe you want to try it on a computer. These are all files I created a couple of years ago and I don’t update them anymore. Thanks for visiting.

  29. Thank you so much for sharing these little cuties! I like the Maya Road packs too but they are so expensive over here, now I can make my own! Such a fab demo, Sharon xx
