If you don’t use your printed scrapbook supplies right away, they can get messy quite fast. I print a handful of pocket cards and embellishments every month and I put the ones that I didn’t use in a bowl all mixed up. I’m sure you can guess how frustrating to find anything in that mess!
But recently I designed an envelope to print and store each collection cards & elements together. So each collection has its own envelope and the name is nicely written at the front of it.
I thought it would be helpful for you to have access to the template as well! I designed two versions of this envelope. One can hold 3×4 inch cards and the other is for 4×6 inch cards. Envelopes are big enough to hold at least ten cards and lots of paper embellishments.
Download the free envelope printables by clicking the button below and let’s organize your scrapbook supplies! Download includes both editable PSD files and PDF files.
I printed the envelopes on A4 size Canson Marker paper which is semi-transparent. You can also print these on a good quality vellum paper. The one I had on hand was not suitable for Inkjet printer so I couldn’t demonstrate with vellum but if you love to see what’s in the envelope right away, vellum is the best choice.
If you’ll print on Letter size paper, there is a specific PSD & PDF file in the download zip for that size.
To edit the collection name or whatever you want to write instead of that, you’ll need access to Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or a software that can edit layered Photoshop files.
Simply choose text tool and click on the text layer to write your preferred text. Then send the file to your printer. Don’t forget to print at 100% without scaling the print file.
Or if you don’t have access to any editing software, download free Adobe PDF reader to fill in the collection name in the PDF files I provided.
Once printed, cut along the outer lines of the envelope template.
With a bone folder, fold the flaps of the envelope backwards.
Glue together the side flaps and the bottom flap. I used Pritt for this but you can also use double sided tape.
Fill in your cards and embellishments in the envelope and close the lid with a piece of washi tape. Voila, you’re done!

As always, keep documenting because life’s worth recording.
This is a fantastic idea! It will encourage me to print some extra bits to keep for my little notebook for random journal style scrapping 🙂
This is such a brilliant idea! Thank you for the editable .psd file too! I can’t wait to make some of these and get my stash organized!
You’re very welcome Karen! I’m glad it’s useful for you <3
These are awesome, Elif. Thank you so much! 🙂
Thanks for these printable envelopes Elif! Great for organizing embellishments (and already thinking about other ways to use these envelopes 😉
