This is a present for my friend Brian.
He wanted some handmade stationary, i decided to make it all from recycled material.
This is everything:


All of the envelopes are made out of pages from magazines,
The pages are all paper bags that have been cut down to different sizes, also every page has a little tree stamp on it


Then i made a bag to keep everything in. And it is made out of plastic bags, there is two pockets on the front for pens, stickers for the To and From, and also wax and a seal with a J on it, which is his last name.



Thanks for looking.
The button i got in a swap from an awesome Talyra

I have also made a ton of these envelopes from magazines, but usually just use them myself.  I was wondering how you secure the back flap?  I slap a packing label on the front for the address and use tape, but I have considered selling them and wanted to try and figure out a classier way of sealing the envelope... maybe double sided tape?

That is why i gave him the wax and seal.

Though I'm way late to this posting party, I have to say that I'm madly in love with your recycled plastic bag pouch.  I'm hoping to gift some things in such a container this xmas.  Also, "envelope" or remoistenable glue is commercially available a lot of crafty places.  I know Jo-Ann has it.  Or you can just make your own with elmers+vinegar or gelatin+vinegar.  Recipes are around online if you google "envelope glue" or something of that nature.

What a nice gift for your friend!
You put so much thought into it, and I think you did a great job on the pouch.
