Folded heart envelope

A heart-shaped greeting for someone you love

If you’re wondering what could be concealed inside this pretty envelope, it’s a secret! But what we can reveal is how to make and decorate this heart envelope yourself. It looks more complicated than it really is – you simply write your chosen message on a sheet of paper and then fold it into an envelope shape. With an edding calligraphy pen to assist you and just a little bit of practice, you’ll soon be writing with artistic expression, almost without trying! All you have to do is think up one line of text, or a few special words – or even the lyrics to your favourite song – and write it down, over and over again until you’ve covered the page. What’s really handy is that the practice sheet can be put to use straight away to make the envelope. If you want to find out more about writing with calligraphy products, or you’d like pick up some hints and tips on technique, we recommend you take a look at our Calligraphy Training Course.
