Those are beautiful.  I'd love to receive a letter from you Wink  Hehehe I have a few pen pals and i bet they would love to get a letter with an envelope like that.  Thanks for the awesome idea!

Oh Wow!  I just bought a Muppet Movie Book for .25 at my library!  I planned on making crafts out of it!  It has about 190 pages..
Thank you so much for sharing.... now I will have to go back and see what other books they have!

I think I just found how I will be making the envelopes for my wedding invites. Now I just need to go find some disenchanted botany students who will part with their books for 20 cents. mwahahahahah

right on! I was thinking about it and if you're willing to spend a little more, since they are wedding invites... Might I suggest going to a Barnes & Noble or Borders, and looking through their coffee-table books? I'd look for the books with ONLY pictures, no words, with about 200+ pages of photographs or illustrations. Occasionally you can find a good one on the spot for about 10-12 dollars, but if not, you can search for a used copy on Amazon.com for way cheaper. That way, you kind of already know what you'll end up with, and you won't have to leave it up to chance on what you'll be able to find!

Thanks for posting this! Hurray for reborn books! By the way I just got rid of a pile of books and now I wish they were still here...oh well...I'll be definitely looking for children books in the recycle centers here in DK!

Much as I hate the idea of destroying something as precious as a book, the picture books make beautiful envelopes! And it's not really ruining something, it's saving the good bits of something that was already trashed. Tongue
