An Easy Afikomen Cover to Make

We don't own an afikomen cover—we usually just wrap a piece of matzah in a cloth napkin and call it a cover. But this year I came up with a paper version that is super easy to make and will make you look like a hipster, even if you're not!
Since it's made from paper it costs pennies and the best part is you don't have to know how to sew.

I don't have a color printer—I e-mailed mine to Staples and asked them to print the image in color on 8 1/2 x 11 paper.

While I was there picking it up, I bought a pack of white 9 x 12 envelopes...
Here's how:
1. Print the image as large as possible on white paper.
2. With a gold sharpie pen, I colored the Star of David to make it extra fancy.
3. The image was cut carefully with an x-acto knife.
4. A glue stick makes the back of the paper stick onto the white envelope.
What I want to know is: what's my prize for finding the afikomen?!
