Envelopes from Discarded Children's Book

Untitled

Today I felt like replenishing my stationary stash with some envelopes made from a discarded children's book from 1962.

The envelope template kit from Paper Source is one of my favorite crafty tools.  I have gotten so much use out of it!

I just love putting something handmade and one of a kind into the mail! Do you guys make your own stationary?

  1. Those look so unique (in a totally fantastic way). Who wouldn't love getting one of these beauties in the mail?
    On a totally different subject, I finally got supplies to make a doily. I had a bunch of Grandma's hooks, but she stored them in an old olive jar. They smelled pretty bad so I must has tossed them out. Anyway got new ones and I plan to pick a pattern tonight. Wish me luck.

  4. I love those envelopes, Kate! I really like the designs! I do the same thing, though I don't have a fancy template, I just opened up a few envelopes to draw around their shape onto cardboard and made my own! I just love home-made things which show that someone has cared enough to go to the trouble of preparing them!
    Have a lovely creative day! Sandra
