Thank you for this tutorial! So quick and easy, and I had everything I needed already!


I used plain old cling film and some tissue paper that was left over from Christmas.


And got this!

(That's the only type of envelope I had to use as a template  Tongue) The only small issue I had was the clingfilm - I tested it at low (nylon/synthetic) temperature, medium (silk/wool) and high (cotton/linen) and found that it actually melted at the high temperatures. BUT the edges didn't stick too well - luckily there was enough in the middle that had bonded for me to use.

Could this be improved by using two layers of cling film? Or should I turn the iron up to the maximum setting (slightly higher than linen)?

Anyway, I shall defintely be making more of these Cheesy Thanks for a clear and concise tute Cheesy

Babizzle, Cling film is plastic, totally different than the suggested freezer paper (which is paper with a thin layer of wax on it).  I wouldn't iron the cling film at all, to tell the truth.  It's not surprising to me that it melted.  That could ruin your iron, and the fumes from melting it probably aren't healthy either.

Your envelopes look really nice though!  I would just make them with paper and not worry about the ironing parts.

I didn't iron directly onto the cling film - it was sandwiched between tissue paper and computer paper. I'm assuming the cling film acts like iron-on interfacing does with fabric, and binds like a glue. It's just a cool way to beable to line the envelopes, and I guess the resulting paper could be used for pretty much anything Smiley

Babizzle - great job!!  I find that ironing the edges after you cut them out helps the edges stick.  Perhaps iron them a bit longer??  I do find that I have to turn my iron to a higher temp when I use plastic wrap/cling film as opposed to when I use freezer paper.

OriginalYouth - I think Babizzle was following the second method I posted a tutorial for.  In the second method you use plastic wrap/cling film paired with two pieces of paper.  The plastic wrap/cling film never actually touches the iron.

lkdlakdoieu I love this idea.  Here's some of mine: (click for larger)



Some people's tissue paper seemed to show through the freezer paper on the inside.  Mine didn't really. Sad

I also made one where I put half red and half yellow tissue paper on the freezer paper and ironed it so they just barely touched, making an enelope with a diagonal line dividing the red from the yellow side.  Alas, I've already sent it.

I also tried using wrapping paper.  It didn't stick as well--it was a little bumpy in some spots, but it did work.
