I really like the different ways that envelopes obscure whatever is inside them, so I started collecting old envelopes thinking they could be used for something. Any ideas?

Rolled paper beads.

I have a really cute paper punch in the shape of a mini envelope. It is very small...here let me fold one, and I will tell you...1" tall, by 1 1/2" wide. 2.5 mm x 3.8 mm? I think I have that right for the metric friends here.

They are uber cute, and I have used them in many projects. Hey! went hunting and found a scan! Yeah! These are ATC size.

Another envelope idea:

Or this one?:

I love to reuse envelope materials. I have also just used the cellophane to overlay things, too. I have done many things for backgrounds with that style of "security paper". I get it a multitude of colors. Sometimes black, sometimes green, or blue. It is a neat "texture" to add to my journal pages, and such.

Just ideas, but hat's off to you for wanting to keep it out of the trash and make good use of it!!!


Wanting 6" x 6" I spy panels. For a quilt like this:

I made a decorative paper chain out of these at work. Bunting would be cute too.

I wizz mine up in a blender with some warm water.  The paper pulp is a great crafting medium.  I also put them through my shredder and uss the strips as a quilling medium.
