I am totally in love with making envelopes now!  My husband and I are moving out of state at the end of the month, so that means we are cleaning out old stuff like crazy.  He has had this huge box of BMX magazines for like 2 years now...and he told me to "get rid of 'em."  I saw some cute envelopes in this craft book a couple of days ago and couldn't resist.  So here they are...and I made some matching note cards for them too.  Oh, also, the address tags on the front are my hubby's old business cards.  They worked perfect!  Enjoy!

Great idea!!!

I'm going to steal that idea after I get married.  I'll use all my old bridal magazines as envelops for our thank you cards!  Or just for thank-yous to the wedding party, everyone else it should be more formal I guess.

They are really nice, you could use them for your change of address notice and send them to all your friends and family with your new address on them.

What a great idea, were they difficult to make?
I'm thinking these would be a great gift idea for elementry school children for Mother's and Father's day.

Even Brownies, Girl Guides etc could do these up. Granted they wouldn't look quite as professional as yours but its the idea and pretty much free resources.

Wouldn't seed envelopes look cute done with gardening magazines!?
The list goes on-great idea!
Thanks

I've got ridiculous amounts of magazines...unfortunately most of them aren't appropriate for this...unless I could use them for a potential suitor in the future for invites to his bachelor party or something.

Anyhow...I think you shouldn't have to be formal! If it fits your style, people should appreciate it anyway...Maybe that's just me...

just a heads up... depending on how glossy they are postage will be higher.  The post office told me because then thay have to sort it by hand,

Oh my gosh yes!  This would be a great idea for elementary school children.  I basically tore apart an old envelope, traced it onto poster board and ta da!  It's really easy.  I am seriously in love with these.  There are so many options.

I agree!  I think that no matter what print you use they come out cute.

I have been making envelopes out of wallpaper samples never in a million years thought about using magazine pages. I always have tons of magazines hanging around. Can't wait to get back home to get started on this project.
