I really like this idea of making envelopes. I found it on The Best of DIY blog which had card dropped on Doodle Week. (Thanks). You could use all kinds of scrap and junk paper. Even all that junk I keep getting from Rogers and Bell trying to sell me more services I already have or don’t want.
The only downside is that I have a ton of paper I could use up this way but very few letters I can write. It’s been a long time since I was penpalling and all my Grandparents are deceased. Still, if I joined up to exchange postcards (which I would like to do) I could make my own fancy and unique arty envelopes to ship them off in. 🙂
