My Creative Space

I've been recycling my old interior magazines by tearing lots of beautiful pages and cutting them into small envelopes. I will use them to hold my handmade thank you cards I send along Karuski's Etsy orders. I love to collect those magazines but after storing them in a bookshelf for some years I feel it is about the time to do something useful with them!






If you want to make similar project you can find a free envelope template at Crafty Templates . Please remember that this template is for personal use only. Trace it on a magazine or catalogue page you like to use, after having it cut add paper glue or two sided tape to assemble the envelope (by using the tape you avoid the wrinkles). I like to close mine with a cute handstamped sticker after tucking a card inside.

Enjoy!

ps. Happy Midsummer too!

I love recycling. Did you see the etsy blog about people using old magazines to make the envelopes to send their sales off in? It was a while ago but a great idea.
