That's a brilliant idea! They look like you'd bought at a specialty or something, great job. Smiley

I make envelopes like these all the time!  They're super fun to make, and you're right--what an addiction!  Smiley

I saw your envelopes and thought they looked great so I marched straight to my local charity book shop hoping for some bargain books to recycle...unfortunately, they were really expensive although I did manage to pick up an old X Men kids annual cheap so that should do for some bright, comic book envelopes.

Thanks for the inspiration

These are fantastic! Is there a particular pattern for envelopes you recommend?

This is the question that I have.... your envelopes look so uniform that it implies you are using a pattern of some sort... are you?

Yep. The pattern was made by carefully unfolding an existing envelope, then tracing it onto a thicker, more sturdy material (the cardboard from a cereal box). Then you just trace and cut to your heart's content.

Utterly awesome.

Couple of things for everyone.

You can probably cut out several envelopes at once by stacking paper and using your rotary cutter or exacto (for us casual types who'll make less than 100 in a batch).

Secondly, be sure to use labels to address any envelopes that are going through USPS. Those gorgeous envelopes are going to confuse their scanning system.

These are so cute! The people getting your letters will have such cheery mail.  Smiley

A friend & I are having a craft day this week, and we're gonna make a bunch of these for holiday cards.
