HANDMADE PAPER ENVELOPES




  If a piece of paper has images, color, paint or print on it, it is not likely that I will throw it out, no matter what size it is. I love paper scraps. I love a good stash of paper supplies which will include images I have collected, pictures I have cut from magazines including words, scraps of paper I have saved when cleaning up, stamps from letters, anything paper item of interest that catches my eye, I cut it, I paint it, I always save it. I love to use these paper scraps for decorating the packages that I mail to customers who purchase from me. Decorating my packages is just as fun to me as  the art I make inside the package.
 


Today I was inspired to make these handmade envelopes from magazines. The inside center has a place to write your message or letter. They can be used like cards or addressed as an envelope and mailed like mail art. You would be surprised what you can do with small bits of paper and images.



I love your visits, leave me a comment so I will know you were here!
