I love sending my letters in fancy envelopes! It's so much more fun than white :]

Love it! Great idea to use maps, I made envelopes once from an old Christmas Pier1 catalog .. such shiny pretty colors, it was so much fun. Thanks for reminding me to try this with other old papers 'n stuff.  Smiley

I actually also have this big old battered book of photos from old Westerns that I plan to do the same thing with! Smiley

I love these! I am promptly going to find an old atlas and make some of these, or get my very own origami guru to do it  Grin

word of caution when using wrapping paper-- many types of wrapping paper are difficult to deal with when using a glue stick. i find that many kinds of wrapping paper curls  a lot when wet with glue, making it necessary to work very quickly once the glue is applied. glue dots solve this problem Smiley
