I love to re-use security envelopes.
I made a few of these last year and sold them when I went and sold the Holiday CRAFTACULAR, in NYC.
This year I didn't go to NYC, but I made a few for my own tree and to give away to family as Christmas gifts ...
here are a couple of em'.

What a gorgeous way to recycle!  Do you just cut and fold or do you cover them with something to "stiffen" up the paper?

I guess I forgot to mention that the envelopes are decoupaged to a cardboard type star I had bought at Hobby Lobby for something like ninety nine cent, and then varnished to protect it forever ...
