DIY

There are many templates for making your own envelopes. But instead of downloading one, printing it, trimming it, etc. etc., I carefully opened an existing envelope and there was my template. No trimming needed, either.

So here's an envelope made from scratch: the envelope itself, made from kraft paper that I stamped; the label (one of my collages, turned into a black and white image, and printed); and a little house I carved from an eraser.

 For Jc and anyone else interested:

  3. It would be interesting to see the original collage beside the black and white version of same. It has great composition and really stands out on the envelope.

  4. And that is so charming.

    The darling angel you gave me is on my April 28 post. Thanks again. She is precious!

    Hugs,

  5. Thank you for that, and while I love the colour scheme, the black and white creates Mood. How clever of you to go that route! xo
