Since today was mother's day, I needed envelopes for the letters my family and I wrote her. I wondered what I could use. To me, magazine pages can look a little... I don't know. Funky, I guess. So I looked around, and found a whole pack of brown paper bags (the lunch bag kind, not the grocery kind). And these were born! It was so easy, it took about five minutes. One paper bag can make 2 envelopes. I love the look of these. They're kind of vintage-y looking. After getting everyone's letters, I tied them together with some string. Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things (sorry, I love The Sound of Music).

If you want to know how to make some, you can find the tutorial here: http://chewynoodles.blogspot.com/2012/05/happy-mothers-day-paper-bag-envelope.html

Thanks for looking! C & c welcome!  Grin

What a great way to recycle. I'm sure your Mom loved getting all her notes.

This has a great rustic feel, especially all tied up with string!
