Very cute. I'm imagining tons of those butterflies as a mobile, or jean patches on kids jeans, or purse decorations or so many other beautiful things!

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Calendar envelopes - with brief, detailed tutorial on: January 09, 2008 05:45:55 PM
inspired by this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218905.0 of course.

Here they are - made from a calender published by the Historical society where I'm from

A couple backs - I like how the snowy house one has trees lined up on the back.

Now for a tutorial!

I used this http://images.scrippsweb.com/DIY/2004/02/20/large_envelope_template.pdf template

1. Get together a glue stick, scissors, an old calender and a ballpoint pen.

2. cut out your template and trace it on to the inside of your future envelope

3. Cut out this first envelope, but don't use it yet, because the stiff paper of the calender is much easier to trace than printer paper. Trace lots more.

4. Cut out everything. Carefully.

5. Here's an important tip - SCORE the fold lines with a ball point pen, scoring tool, or paperclip. press hard!

6. fold in the sides, and fold up the bottom(the shorter bit)

7. put a little glue on both sides that will be stuck together.

8. Revel in your envelopes. Maybe make some lick and stick glue for the tops from jello and vinegar (there are easy recipes online)

You can either take apart the size envelope that you want or find another.

I found this link by searching craftster http://images.scrippsweb.com/DIY/2004/02/20/large_envelope_template.pdf

I found these with a quick google search: (this first one is actually a free program to make your own customizable envelope sizes)

I actually collect calenders.... a little odd, but I think I've finally found the craft for the large stack of them that's under my bed. Envelopes ahoy.  The first to go will be one full of pictures of historical buildings in my area.

You drew those faces yourself!?! I thought they were printed on the fabric!

They're cute either way, but wow.

I love them.
