A few days ago, I recalled a 2007 post on How About Orange, about making envelopes out of patterned paper. The reason I thought of it is that I’m down to my last few glassine envelopes. I was inspired by Jess’ clever idea to make my own using one of my 2.5 x 3.5 inch glassine envelopes as a template.
I also decided to have fun with my new envelopes by crafting my own paper collage-style, combining pages from an old logarithm book, kraft paper, paper doilies, gold stickers, dry cleaning receipts, post-its, origami paper bits and of course, washi tape.
This is a great weekend project. If you want to make your own, all it takes is an envelope for a pattern, some paper, scissors, glue, and all the paper scraps that you need to clean out of your purse (receipts, parking tickets and such). :)
