DIY map envelopes

Invites & Stationery

We were pretty intrigued when we came across this DIY map envelope on Dog N' Bird, so we did some research and found The site couldn't make it simpler: type in an address (your wedding location, site of your rehearsal dinner, etc.), write a custom message and hit "preview" to get a printable template of your envelope. Visit your local paper store to get cardstock that is thicker than standard computer paper but still bendable. I got in a little fight with my printer when it didn't want to print it out correctly, so I took a screen shot and pasted it into Word to make sure I was getting the right version. See where I took it from there below:


Top, left: Carefully cut out the envelope shape. Top, right: Fold the flaps over on the edges, starting with the sides, then bottom, then top. Bottom, left: Apply a small amount of glue to the bottom of the two side flaps and adhere to the bottom flap. Bottom, right: Stuff your envelope then fold the top flap over and close with a foil seal (I found these "Love" ones at Staples). —Cari Wolfert
