Awesome idea. I love them. Have you tried mailing them out though? Would they be safe to mail out if you just use a mailing label?

There are several crafts you can do with paper shredder shreds, use it to stuff your creations or for paper dolls...

These are so cool!  I recently found an envelope I made as a kid out of a picture of flowers in a magazine...I'd love to try something like this again someday!

I mail mine with a mailing label.. have not had any trouble with them.  (I also have been known to mail tin cans, and soda bottles!)

That's soooooo cool!  Cool I think thats an awesome idea- to unfold an existing envelope and tace it! I am definitely doing this now! I would love to receive a letter in one of those envelopes  Wink P.S. I think it would be awesome to be a mailman- seeing all the cool and creative envelopes- especially around holidays. I don't know, I guess that's always been a dream of mine  Grin LOL

I have a plastic template thingy somewhere for making envelopes, but I love your idea of tracing one onto cereal box!  Sheesh - I could have saved the money I spent on the template and bought some old books. . .  Doh!

Nooo, will you adopt me and let me live in your craft room?  Sounds like the funnest place on earth!

Sure, move on in. I think I have a tiny space between the stamp pads and the gluesticks you could nestle into! BTW, it is the funnest place on earth, aside from Disneyworld/land...

I'd gladly pay for airmail rates all the way from Argentina to wherever you are just to get in return one of your Rainbow Brite envelopes. This is a great idea, not only for the kick to my childhood RB has given me, but for keeping safe the lost art of writing letters.
