Awesome idea. I love them. Have you tried mailing them out though? Would they be safe to mail out if you just use a mailing label?

There are several crafts you can do with paper shredder shreds, use it to stuff your creations or for paper dolls...

These are so cool!  I recently found an envelope I made as a kid out of a picture of flowers in a magazine...I'd love to try something like this again someday!

I mail mine with a mailing label.. have not had any trouble with them.  (I also have been known to mail tin cans, and soda bottles!)

That's soooooo cool!  Cool I think thats an awesome idea- to unfold an existing envelope and tace it! I am definitely doing this now! I would love to receive a letter in one of those envelopes  Wink P.S. I think it would be awesome to be a mailman- seeing all the cool and creative envelopes- especially around holidays. I don't know, I guess that's always been a dream of mine  Grin LOL

I have a plastic template thingy somewhere for making envelopes, but I love your idea of tracing one onto cereal box!  Sheesh - I could have saved the money I spent on the template and bought some old books. . .  Doh!

Nooo, will you adopt me and let me live in your craft room?  Sounds like the funnest place on earth!

Sure, move on in. I think I have a tiny space between the stamp pads and the gluesticks you could nestle into! BTW, it is the funnest place on earth, aside from Disneyworld/land...

Let's swap lil gelli prints or ATCs!

I'd gladly pay for airmail rates all the way from Argentina to wherever you are just to get in return one of your Rainbow Brite envelopes. This is a great idea, not only for the kick to my childhood RB has given me, but for keeping safe the lost art of writing letters.
