These look great! I'm always looking for ways to use up old magazines, thanks for the inspiration. Smiley

As a college student, I can appreciate the clever thriftyness of this project!  They look great, and now I'm really feeling like I should make some too:)

Yeah.  I have sent a few of them out.  They work great!  Thanks for the compliment!

Great envelopes! I love making envelopes out of magazines, too (mostly Country Living & the Gudrun Sjoden clothing/homewares brochure which is printed on lovely paper).

I use them as keepsake storage, and as gift wrapping.

Never as 'external' envelopes - too worried about them being too flimsy or getting damaged, so I always use them inside another plain, bought envelope.

Cool idea, I ripped up all my magazines to try my hand at making paper.  Never thought of using the extra paper as envelopes. Really clever idea!  Is the postage different for them at all? or does it really matter?

I too am obsessed with repurposed envelopes.  I have tons of National Geographic Magazines from the 80s and 90s and have made some absolutely amazing envelopes of landforms and animals..and people...and just about everything else.  My favorite are the newest ones that I made:  I cut out Marc by Marc Jacobs ads from all of my fashion magazines and made them into envelopes.  It's an addiction!
