Obviously, I love recycling and making things out of other things. Envelopes are one example. You can pick up an envelope template pretty cheap or use an old envelope as a template and, hey-presto, you can turn almost any paper item into an interesting and arty envelope. Magazines, newspapers, maps, junk-mail, comics, calendars, sheet music, old books, painted/marbled paper, scrap booking paper, security envelopes... Beats being plain and boring.
|Magazines: Love these, using an old envelope as a template|
|Galaxy envelopes- Using astronomy magazines!|
|Painted envelopes- I'm so going to use the kids paintings as wrap when I have kids!|
